:hi:
Trio Bald Eagles
Update 6/2/2017 Fledglings have not been back to the nest. Volunteers have spotted them in the area and are doing fine. Camera will be up for another week and then will be taken offline on June 9. Typically the adults return to work on the nest in November. Will have to wait and see what transpires.

Update 5/30/2017 Late this afternoon, the eaglets have now become fledglings. (fledgling means they took their first flight).

Unusual situation/abnormality in BE nest

Roberts Bay Bald Eagle Nest

Parents raise their own trio of the eaglets plus on more red tailed hawklet! :slap:

Eaglets are around 8-10 weeks old, hawklet is younger, some say about 5 weeks old.



P.S: There is no online stream from the nest.

In one of WTE threads here in Looduskalender last year or year or two before there were pics (from a ringing of eaglets) from a nest in which there were two WTE eaglets and three buzzard chicks of different ages, youngest about the same age (not much adult feathers yet) as the hawklet in that video. I think that nest was in Germany. Also in the same thread there were pics of another WTE nest in Europe with eaglets and one buzzard chick. Looks like red tailed hawk and Bald eagle are a pair of species analogous to common buzzard and WTE. Sure these are rare occasions, but there are some studies of them. I found this: http://www.bioone.org/doi/pdf/10.1676/10-084.1.

Thanks, Hyypio, for the interesting article.
I have checked the Internet a few week ago for the same topic and I have found out that it happens... because of I have posted one similar story about WTE and Common Buzzard chick in Poland.
You can find it here: viewtopic.php?p=531275#p531275

And mod Ame answered me by mentioning probably the same story as you mentioned above... about those Buzzards chicks in WTE nest in Hungary :))

These are so "funny" stories! Really. Something what is not expected but since the situation is calm we all can enjoy this bizzare fact. :rolleyes:

In the forum where people comment this Vancouver nest I have found this video... I think you will enjoy it!

It's really incredible, but really beautiful, what the nature can do. Thanks for sharing this video!
Edit: Thank you, Mamicja, for the updates from the amazing Trio nest.

Birdfriend, I agree. It s incredible!
And also funny :D I hope the hawk will be able to become a hawk later in his life... cause now he is an eagle 8-)

If anybody is interested, there is a youtube channel where some newer videos are posted. I have already subscribed to it:
Sasse photography channel

Here is a video about a feeding from the little hawk:
https://youtu.be/cT3rUlljSrw

And I have read this in a chat:
There was a video a couple of days ago of some ornithologists (I think they were) visiting the nest and talking about this. They think the mother hawk was taken by the eagle just as she was about to give birth and she did in the eagle nest. Sad story for the mom hawk, but at least the baby lived by the nurturing of the eagles. Now to see if the eagles don't eat the baby hawk, or the baby hawk imprinting on the eagles and that not being a good outcome for his/her future survival.
But I don't know, if it's true.

If you watch the long video from Sasse photo channel (1 hour plus something) - from the first day when Mr. Sasse came under the nest tree, you could hear that explanation. I have watched it that day when I posted the first remark about the little hawk.

That man who talked about this "possibility" is known ornithologist David Hancock (Bald eagles expert).
He also writes on his webpage about possibilities how it could happen that hawk egg appeared in the eagle nest.

I was very surprised to hear that. Never thought that this is one way how it can happen. From my point of view is much more likely that the little one has been brought simply as a prey ... and survived. But who know? :puzzled:

This interesting story is mentioned in the National Geographic :2thumbsup:

Update on Vancouver Bald Eagles nest with a little hawk
Sidney, British Columbia

Feeding


The little hawklet has an almost completely developed plumage, so it will not take a much time and the little "eaglet" will fledge :laugh:

Wow!
:shock:
Nature never seizes to amaze!
I heard about this nest and the red tailed hawk, but I didn't have the time to find out more. Tonight, I had to go to YouTube to see Tina and Teo, and I see the videos on the side, so I watched!
:faint:
Thank you, Lubaska and Birdfriend, for all of the information and postings!!

:wave: Birdfriend, thank you for the pictures of the beautiful fledged hawk! :chick: "Little Eagle!" :)
It was so nice to hear that it fledged the other day. I've been waiting for pictures or videos. I'm hoping for video from Sasse today.
This is such an amazing story!
