The two bald eagles who recently built a nest on Staten Island for breeding purposes seem to have given up their dream of raising smug Native New Yorker offspring, according to the Department of Environmental Conservation.
An eagle pair was first spotted in the borough back in February, with experts claiming the happy couple appeared to have built the city's first eagle nest in about a century. Though they reportedly fled after finding the election for Michael Grimm's Congress seat too hot to handle, another eagle couple began nesting in the area in April.
Sadly, DNAinfo reported today that even these eagles weren't ready to make babies in the same borough that birthed this "True Life: I'm a Staten Island Girl" star, with workers from the DEC reporting that neither adult birds nor babies were found at the nest site.
Ah well, you know what they say—NYC is a bird- eat-bird world.
