The Eagle and the Hawk

The following URL was passed along to me by Jennifer here at the Museum. It’s a live Eagle Cam from Duke Farms in New Jersey. The live feed is of an eagle’s nest in a sycamore tree. More interesting is a previously recorded video that is linked to on the right side of the web page (click on “2013-03-24 Red-tailed hawk Fight¬†in the right hand column when you get to the main page). That particular video shows a brief battle between a careless, and not quite year old, Red-tailed Hawk and a full adult Bald Eagle.

If you’re a bit squimish you may wish to not¬†view the video, there’s no real “blood and guts” but one of the birds does not live through to the end.

The video raises several questions in my mind but I will hold any thoughts until you view the video and perhaps send in a comment or two.

Thanks, Jennifer.
