There's an unusual menage a trois within Parksville city limits. A trio of bald eagles has set up its household and is in the midst of rearing two young.

Note from Hancock Wildlife Foundation:  We also observed a pair of females with a male helping to raise chicks down in California on one of the Channel Islands a few years ago.
