Usually Enemies, Bald Eagles Adopt Red-Tailed Hawk Chick | National Geographic

16 June 2017

A pair of bald eagle parents in British Columbia have a surprising addition to their feathered family – a red-tailed hawk chick.

This reality reminds me a bit of the fiction of Selma Lagerlöf’s book The Wonderful Adventures of Nils. In that book, hunters kill the father and mother of a golden eaglet called Gorgo. The goose Akka keeps Gorgo alive by feeding him mainly fish; instead of, eg, rabbits which golden eaglets usually get from their parents. In the British Columbia bald eagle nest, the young hawk will also probably have eaten more fish than usual for its species.
