Two bald eagle eggs being watched by a webcam were abandoned in their nest in the last few days.
There will be no Delta eaglets on the webcam this year.
The two eggs in an bald eagle nest being watched by online birdwatchers are more than two weeks overdue, and have now been abandoned by their parents.
“The eggs are obviously infertile,” said Karen Bills, project coordinator at the Hancock Wildlife Foundation, which set up two cameras to watch the nest at the OWL Rehabilitation Society.
“Since this is the first year this pair has laid eggs, they probably don’t know how long they are supposed to wait for their eggs to hatch,” Bills said Friday.
