Where I live there are quite a few bald eagles, but I still am awed each time I see one. There is an eagle nest just off the road I travel into town. They had two eaglets born this spring and it was fun to see them in the next and to see them finally fly. However, I have only noticed one eaglet for quite some time now. As my son and I were driving by tonight I commented on it. My son told me that if there are more then one eaglet born usually the dominant one will kill the other. How horrible! Of course I didn't want to belive this so looked up bald eagles on the internet when we got home. Yep, that is what it said. How strange and sad nature can be. Here's the link I read.
