Duration: 02:56

www.pbs.org/wnet/nature/episod... It’s called Cain and Abel syndrome. On a farm in Minnesota, a mother bald eagle feeds her newly hatched eaglets. The four-day-old female eaglet has turned on her smaller, two-day-old male sibling. Every time the mother feeds them, the older eaglet gets much more to eat. Her younger brother may not be able to hold on to life for long.

"American Eagle" premieres on PBS Sunday, November 16 at 8 p.m. (check local listings). "American Eagle" is part of the 27th season of the Peabody and Emmy award-winning series produced by Thirteen/WNET New York for PBS. Major support provided by Canon U.S.A. Inc., SC Johnson, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. For more information, visit www.pbs.org/wnet/nature/episod...
