Two months after the first set of eggs failed, a new egg at the Carolina Raptor Center!

Surprise!  The non-releasable eagle pair Derek and Savannah at the Carolina Raptor Center have surprised us all with an egg!  Savannah laid 3 eggs back in December that unfortunately did not hatch, and then yesterday, a new egg!  I really couldn’t find much information on what they call a ‘second clutch’ or ‘double clutch’ which is when eagles lay a new set of eggs if something happens to the first ones.  But what I did find, said it was rare and usually happened within a few weeks of the failure of the first clutch, not months later!  Staff at the Carolina Raptor Center noted that it is unlikely that the new egg is viable, but maybe we will all be surprised with an eaglet!  Talons crossed!  Link to cam: http://www.wcnc.com/story/weather/cameras-eagle/2014/07/17/eagle-camera/12792373/
