Two teenage boys face federal charges after shooting and killing a bald eagle near Montezuma this week, officials said.

The first bullet struck the 1-year-old majestic bird in the wing, breaking two bones and knocking it out of a tree, said Dr. K.C. Cornish, the veterinarian who cared for the bird.
