In a once-in-a-lifetime occurrence for wildlife photographers, a pair of bald eagles have adopted a hawk chick – usually a bitter rival.
The incredible scenes have seen the eagle family feeding the chick as if it were one of their own, attracting the attention of the science and bird-watching communities.
According to one eagle biologist, the chances of finding a red-tailed hawk in an eagle’s nest, like in Shoal Harbor Migratory Bird Sanctuary, British Colombia, Canada, is around one-in-ten-thousand.
News of the rare occurrence began to spread in early June.
Since then, viewers have theorised over how the chick managed to get to the nest – and simply whether or not it will survive.
