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).
