Thousands of terns, frightened by the drone, abandoned their nests and left a total of about three thousand eggs on an island in Southern California. It is reported by ABC News.

The incident occurred in May when two drones illegally flew over the Bolza Chica Ecological Reserve in Huntington Beach. One of the devices failed and fell to the ground. Frightened by the attack of the “predator”, the birds left their nests and did not return.

According to the representative of the reserve, Melissa Leble, this is one of the largest cases of egg abandonment. She also noted that due to the pandemic, birds are particularly affected, as more and more people try to walk in open spaces. Many of them come to the reserve with their dogs and walk them without a leash. In turn, the animals chase the birds, and they leave their clutches.

Earlier it was reported that a bald eagle attacked and destroyed a drone belonging to the American government. Later, the authorities analyzed the data and the flight path of the drone and came to the conclusion that the bird tore off the propeller, after which the device fell into the lake.
