Michael and LABIRD:

It is possible that something happened to one or both parents. It is very
unlikely that both parents are fine and have abandoned their young. But my
educated guess is that the eaglet is fine. When an eaglet is at fledging
age, the parents quickly drop off food and may only visit the nest to bring
in food once a day, so it would be difficult to detect whether the parents
are still feeding the eaglet. I will need more information before
determining whether a rescue is in order, so please have your in-laws call
me: (504) 717-3544 (cell).
