Proof that families come in all shapes, sizes and species, three eagles — two dads and a mom — are raising three, fluffy-feathered eaglets in a nest near the Mississippi River this spring.

According to the Stewards of the Upper Mississippi River Refuge, all three birds, Valor I, Valor II (dads) and Starr (mom), “take part in nest maintenance, incubation and raising the young.”

A planet in our solar system needs a name - and you can help It's been 10 years since the largest unnamed minor planet in our solar system was discovered. Yet it has remained nameless, apart from the identifier 2007 OR10. The three astronomers who discovered it want your help to change that. Meg Schwamb, Mike Brown and David Rabinowitz announced the campaign to pick a suitable name in an article published by The Planetary Society on Wednesday. Keyword: suitable. This isn't the first time the public's been asked to help name something. There were the eaglets at the National Arboretum who were named Freedom and Liberty. Not to be confused with the pair a year later named Honor and Glory.

The refuge hosts a live webcam of the Illinois family, which is a rare example of an eagle trio cooperatively nesting, raising their young together. While not unheard of, such trios have been documented only a few times, according to the National Audubon Society: in Alaska in 1977, in Minnesota in 1983 and in California in 1992.

What might make this all-American family different is that both males are copulating with the mom, whereas earlier examples of a second dad may have been live-in nanny situations, with no role in the reproduction itself, Audubon reports.

Domestic life in this nest was in turmoil before Valor II arrived, and it has been only two years since the dad duo lost their first partner, Hope.

When Hope and Valor I began nesting at this location, Valor I “wasn’t a very good partner or father,” Audubon wrote. “He was irresponsible about incubating the eggs and feeding the eaglets, which were really his only two jobs.”

“Normally they will switch roles, but what happened was Hope would sit on the nest for a long, long time,” Pam Steinhaus, the visitor services manager at the refuge, told Audubon. “Valor I would never bring food in, so she’d have to get up and leave to hunt.”

He would hang out on the nest for 10 minutes — then get up and fly away. Which is probably why everyone in the nest was cool with Valor II stepping up.

“I think Hope didn’t care for what Valor I was doing, so he got replaced,” Steinhaus told Audubon.

Even after Valor II moved in, Valor I stayed. By 2016, the trio was “cooperatively nesting.” Even Valor I was contributing, apparently motivated by his new male counterpart.

On the evening of March 24, two adult bald eagles attacked the nest . The webcam recorded the attack that lasted over an hour and shows two adult eagles battling on the ground in Daily attacks occurred throughout April with an occasional flyby in May. Two males continued to raise the eaglets to fledging.

But the happy nest didn’t last long, with Hope disappearing in a true-crime, Unsolved-Mysteries kind of way.

The dads lost their first partner when two other male eagles attacked their nest last year. It was all captured on video and documented by the Stewards of the Upper Mississippi River Refuge.

On the evening of March 24, 2017, the stewards wrote, two adult eagles attacked the trio’s nest. The attack lasted for more than an hour, they say, and video “shows two adult eagles battling on the ground in a desperate talon clinching struggle.”

When the dust settled, Hope was gone — vanished without a trace.

“The searchers found no sign of Hope nor of feathers on the ground where the struggle occurred,” the stewards wrote. Two days later, two more eagles (unclear whether it was the same pair) attacked the nest for a second time.

“Valor I and Valor II boldly defended the chicks and prevented the marauding eagles from entering the nest and no injuries were observed,” the stewards wrote. “Daily attacks occurred throughout April with an occasional flyby in May.”
