Three eggs in a bald eagle's nest being watched by thousands of online viewers will never hatch, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
The EagleCam launched last month provides a 24-hour, live feed of a Twin Cities nest that's home to an eagle couple. Approximately 15,000 people have logged on to watch out for the expected chicks.
WCCO reports two of the eggs cracked and broke apart. The mother is still sitting on the third egg, but the DNR says there's likely no baby inside.
The eggs laid in January began failing in late February due to a range of factors including sub-zero temperatures, the Pioneer Press says.
The final egg will likely break apart like the first two did.
The DNR says the pair of eagles might try again to lay eggs this year or another pair might come along and use the nest.
