Audubon Society: 1 Of The Hays Bald Eagle Eggs Breaks

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- There's some bad news for the bald eagle pair that have made their nest in Pittsburgh's Hays section.

According to the Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania, one of the two eggs in the eagle's nest has broken.

The Audubon Society says the mother eagle could be seen on the Eagle Cam this morning removing part of the broken egg from her nest.

There is still one egg left.


The eggs first appeared in the nest last month – the first on Feb. 17 and the second a few days later on Feb. 21.

Since then, the eagle pair has been seen keeping the eggs warm through snow, bitterly cold temperatures and rain.

The Hays eagles produced an eaglet two years ago and three more last year.
