Researchers Discover Bald Eagle Menage á Trois

Researchers at the National Audubon Society have discovered a unique love nest: two male bald eagles in a relationship with a female, and all raising eaglets together. The Washington Post reports that there have been other bald eagle trios, but the difference this time is that both males—dubbed Valor I and Valor II—are having sex with the female, Starr, in a refuge near the Mississippi River. Valor I was in a previous relationship with an eagle named Hope, but she was dissatisfied with him, and Valor II swooped in. Hope then disappeared but the two Valors stuck together until they found Starr, the newspaper reported.
