Study says Seattle is the most dog-friendly city in the U.S.

Some eagles are just too radical to be confined by heteronormative bird monogamy. 

Consider this “polyamorous” family of bald eagle trailblazers, featuring two male eagles, Valor I and Valor II, and one female eagle, Starr, located in Southern Illinois near the upper portion of the Mississippi River.

While some people have been following the non-traditional family for years, the Stewards of the Upper Mississippi River Ridge, an educational non-profit dedicated to the region, just posted a new livestream of the eagle family for nesting season.

To be clear, the eagle family isn’t representative of a traditional polyamorous throuple in the human sense. The throuple doesn’t live in Brooklyn and they aren’t searching for mates on Eagle Tinder. 

The three adult eagles take care of three recently hatched eagle chicks. Parenting responsibilities are fairly neatly divided. The eagle parents take shifts taking care of the eagle chicks. That doesn’t mean that everything is harmonious in the home — eagles will sometimes nudge other eagles, passive-aggressively, to do their part.

“During any given shift change at the nest, the relieving adult will land in the nest and nudge the incubator to take over duties,” the U.S. Fish and Wildlife service said in a statement. “If nudging doesn’t work, then more aggressive moves such as walking on the tail feathers or back of the unrelenting incubator is conducted. If still no movement, the reliever will snuggle against the incubator and wait for an attitude change.”

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service stressed that while it wasn’t all that uncommon for more than two eagles to parent, it was strange to see such “teamwork” among the two males.

“The original trio formed in 2013 after the female chose a new mate,” the U.S. Fish and Wildlife writes. “Even though the original male, known as Valor I, had been replaced by a new male, known as Valor II, he hung around the nest throughout the breeding season and was assumed to be engaged in the nest.”

Valor I and Valor II have been through a lot since 2013. Originally, the two male eagles were nesting with a female eagle named Hope. Sadly, Hope was killed by another eagle in March of 2017, and Starr, the current female of the nest, was introduced in September of that year. 

It’s a beautiful story. Stop whatever dumb Netflix show you’re watching and watch this livestream instead.
