Video: Duke Farms Eagle Fights Hawk to Defend it's Nest

Description:


WATCH THIS GREAT VIDEO.

In a battle between an apparently hungry hawk and an angry eagle, the hawk never stood a chance.

And it was over quickly.

The remarkable encounter was captured on video at Duke Farms, an estate garden in central New Jersey whose Eagle Cam has been keeping track of a bald eagle pair since 2008.

Duke Farms officials say this year's pair of eaglets were either newly hatched or about to hatch when a red-tailed hawk approached the nest a little after 5:30 p.m. Sunday.

But one of the eagle parents saw him coming.

In the video, the eagle parent, sitting on the nest, extends its wings and opens its beak wide just before the hawk arrives. In an instant, it's on top of the intruder. A few vicious slashes with razor-sharp talons, and the hawk is subdued for good. The struggle is over in no more than 10 seconds.

The Eagle Cam has amassed nearly 8 million views in its five years of operation with users logging on from as far away as Japan, Switzerland, Uruguay, India and the Middle East.
