Imagine a young newborn baby bird, just waiting for its mother to come home and feed it. But then, a huge bald eagle swoops and takes it away, presumably for its meal of the day or for her own newly borns.
This is exactly what happened to a young baby hawk, but its fate wasn’t to be as you might expect.
The eagle lands in its nest with the baby hawk gripped firmly in its grasp. You’d more than likely put your money on the baby bird meeting its maker, but this wasn’t the case and the most unusual thing happened.
The mother looks at the baby, unsure what to do with the prey that is supposed to be her newborn’s next meal. The events that followed even took the experts by surprise as she starts to feed the baby hawk as if it was her own.
Instead of seeing the hungry baby as food or a burden, they opened their hearts and took him in as their own. This is a great example of how the animal kingdom can teach us about love and compassion towards people who are different or people that we wouldn’t usually get along with.
