It seems nature is more flexible and understanding than some animals of our own species.  Can you gauge the reaction if a trio of adults in the U.S. were openly parenting a family of kids?  Only if one of them were a governess or au pair or a grandparent.

Well, we have proof of two males and one female Bald Eagle raising a family together.  The nest is along the Mississippi River in Illnois; nest contains three eaglets.

In the past it has been learned by people that some species, especially Corvids, will often welcome a nest helper, usually a young bird that is approaching breeding age.   But the eagle trio is composed of three birds who are at least four years old, based on the mature plumage.
