NORTH FORT MYERS, Fla. — The Center for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife is continuing to monitor baby eaglets E17 and E18.

CROW says they've received several calls about the eaglets and want to warn the public that one eaglet killing the other is a natural process that takes place in many nests.

"The behavior being exhibited by both eaglets plays an important role in their development of survival skills," CROW said in a post on their Facebook page.

They said parents may also choose not to feed one eaglet, putting all their resources toward the eaglet that has the best chances for survival.
