Three Eaglets (pic)
They were left alone a little while ago while mom/dad flew off to do something.

8. Just now I only saw two eaglets. Did the last one not make it?
Earlier, I saw the remnants of the shell in the nest.

Just now I saw the two older ones vying for attention, but nothing else in the nest.

ANyone?

9. Older siblings probably pecked him into submission
The youngest ones learn to go limp and play dead when their siblings start pecking on them. That's probably what happened, although I haven't been watching carefully for the past hour or so.

11. That's certainly a political metaphor, isn't it? I *knew* this was a political thread! ^_^
We poor people are going limp and playing dead because we have been pecked into submission.

Thanks for the reply, and I was wondering about that. HOwever, I don't see any evidence of the third one now.

OH WAIT! The view shifted, and now I see 3 heads! :bounce:

16. Dad was just feeding them, and
Number 2 did a smackdown of Number 3 (order in first photo is 1,3,2)

Then Number 2 tried doing the same smackdown to Number 1 and Number 1 showed him! Then the 2nd photo resulted.
