NBC Charlotte has disappointing news to share from the Carolina Raptor Center.

Savannah and Derek’s remaining egg is not expected to hatch.

Staff members at the Carolina Raptor Center say they have yet to remove the egg, so as not to stress the birds. They suspect the egg was likely never fertile in the first place.

A number of factors could have caused this, but it’s like that recent aviary construction contributed.

Savannah and Derek hope to have new eggs next season.

The birds lost another egg in February.
