Golden Eagles Raise A Hawk I find this one today and I hope i'm in the good thread

Golden Eagles Raise A Hawk
dematson
This is a unique video following A Golden Eagle pair that laid two eagle eggs and brought a Red Tailed Hawk into their nest. They raised the Hawk to fledge in advance of their own eagle chicks fledging. I was able to photograph and video the history of this event. I have a three part narrative about this on my blog Mid Sierra Musings. There was a previous account of this on Vancouver Island with a Bald Eagle pair raising a hawk chick.

This is an interview from Tuesday July 23rd 2019 with Marisa Nelson, Assistant Director at the Quogue Wildlife Refuge, Long Island, NY.
Sam - The 35-year-old bald eagle has been part of the refuge for decades, ever since the bird was shot by a hunter. His right wing was amputated. Sammy could no longer fly, and was lovingly cared for by staff, and was a favorite of visitors.
Long Island officials are offering a $15,000 reward for the safe return of Sam.

Key points
- The eagle was spotted 10 days ago flying with an illegal rabbit trap caught on its foot
- The bird has lost one of its claws and may need to be euthanased.
- The maximum fine for aggravated cruelty is $33,000 and/or 5 years in jail

No hesitation in saying it was the right thing to do for me.
Both are sentient beings as far as I'm concerned, so therefore both have a right to live. Neither were harmed in the outcome of the rescue, so no harm done. The Octopus might have been annoyed his prey was interfered with but both lived to fight another day.
Win/win situation really :thumlft:

Good morning everyone,

We've often talk about nest construction on SWFEC chat, largest nests, where they have been documented ect.
When I saw this photograph, I couldn't think of a better place where it could be appreciated.

Thank you so much to LaRita Nance, the photographer, for her kind permission allowing me to share it with you.

Around the SNF... Engineering at its finest.
