Bald eagles and red-tailed hawks are typically mortal enemies, so this story of a red-tail named “Spunky” that was raised by eagles is particularly interesting. After being orphaned, Spunky was found by bald eagles and adopted by them.
Despite there being doubts that the hawk would survive, it has made it to adulthood and has even started acting like an eagle and has even been spotted living in an eagles nest.
Even though it appears that they’ve all gotten along well, this big happy family won’t last for long. His eagle family will eventually migrate north, but hawks generally stay put where they are.
