Earlier this year I posted a blog [here] showing in cartoon form one of the differences between Golden and White-tailed Eagles. Here is another cartoon, Sibling Rivalry.
It is not uncommon for Golden Eagles to have twins, but the youngest can get an incredibly rough deal compared to White-tailed Eagle siblings. In fact, while Goldens may prefer being a singleton, White-tails can be known to raise three chicks in the one nest. I watched this happen on a webcam based in Estonia a few years ago. It was fascinating to watch, and not much room once the three of them were close to fledging; of which they all did successfully.
