Scary Moments on Webcam When Bald Eagles Bring Fish Hook, Line Back To Nest
Audubon Society is monitoring nest, says eaglets appear to be fine.
The bald eagles nesting in Hays, PA gave "fans" and viewers of their live stream a scare this weekend. The webcam captured the mother eagle returning to the nest with a fish that had a hook and fishing line stuck in it, then feeding the fish to the two eaglets.
In a Facebook post on Saturday , the Audubon Society said: "we cannot definitively say that one of the eaglets consumed the hook."
But in a post this morning the Audubon Society said that after monitoring the situation and observing the nest, "The great news is that both eaglets appear to be perfectly fine and healthy!"
The Audubon Society says that this scare is also an important reminder of humans' impact on the natural world.
The two eaglets in the nest were born last month, and have already grown exponentially . Last year, one eaglet was born and fledged in June.
