And now, a “HEY! LOOK! BALD EAGLETS!” Distraction.

They found four of ’em in one nest in Maine:

Apparently they usually go with two at a time, and very rarely three eggs hatch and survive.  Four eaglets in one nest that make it is a phenomenon.  But then, Bald Eagles have made it off of the endangered species list in Maine, so maybe there’s something in the water up there.

  1. Link forwarded to friend that earned his Master’s in Wildlife Management with focus on birds. Always nice to send good news to folks.

  2. And here was his response: Wow! Yeah, three is unusual, 1 out of 19 nests when I worked at Lake Shasta in ’96. Never heard of four.
