FULTON, ILLINOIS — Three bald eagles, two males and one female, have been spotted living in one nest while raising three young eaglets in a tree on the Mississippi River in Illinois.

According to a news release by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, the two male eagles are named Valor I and Valor II, while the female eagle goes by Starr.

In a livestream set up by non-profit Stewards of the Upper Mississippi River Refuge, the trio was seen taking care of the nest and feeding the baby eagles.

Starr usually incubates the eggs, CNN reports.

However, the two male eagles do step in and take turns sitting on the eggs whenever she gets tired.

According to the same news release, the initial trio formed in 2013 and consisted of another female eagle named Hope.

Unfortunately, Hope was killed by another eagle, which is when Starr came into the mix.

She has since hatched multiple eggs with both Valor I and Valor II.

It is rare for bald eagles to parent in threes, according to the National Audubon Society.
