SANIBEL, Fla.  — The Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, Inc. says they are sending swabs for further testing.

This comes after caretakers noticed an infection, including discharge in the eyes.

A veterinarian noted the amount of discharge had lessened this morning, however.

E17 weighed 335 grams, and E18 weighed 255 grams.

In the morning feed and treatment, both eaglets were weighed and provided a second round of injectable antibiotics.

CROW does not have a timeline on when the results of the swab will come back.

Testing may take longer due to the pandemic.

They want to ensure the eaglets get as soon as possible.
