A bald eagle freaked yesterday and abandoned her chicks as a 5.3 magnitude earthquake rocked its nest in California’s Channel Islands National Park.

According to, “[a] live cam observing the nest on Santa Cruz Island off the coast of Santa Barbara, caught the bird's reaction when the quake hit at 12:29 p.m. on Thursday.”



As can be seen in the video, the bald eagle appeared to be resting calmly in the nest with three eagle chicks, but when the quake began, the adult eagle performed a quick scan of the area and flew off. Shortly after the rocking seemed to stop, the majestic bird returned.
