BIRDSNEST, Virginia — Authorities say a chemical caused the deaths of five bald eagles on Virginia's Eastern Shore.

 U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service special agency Dan Rolince told The Virginian-Pilot (http://bit.ly/18hXA3S ) that the birds showed traces of the chemical in their system. The chemical was not identified.

Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries Sgt. Steve Garvis said authorities believe the eagles' deaths were accidental. A sixth eagle survived.

"We sometimes see one or two poisoned birds, but six? And with five dying? That's unheard of," said Randy Huwa, executive vice president of the Wildlife Center of Virginia, a renowned animal-care clinic in Waynesboro.
