Is He/She Gonna Make It?

_26_0070 don't fall!By now almost everybody has heard or read about the “adoption” of a red-tailed hawk chick by a family of eagles here in Sidney BC.  From the Victoria Times-Colonist article of June 8, 2017  TC June 8 2017  to news media around the world, this story has  stirred much speculation, mostly around the question “What were they all thinking?”  Local photographers, Suzanne Huot and Terry Venables  Terry’s blog   have documented  progress of the adopted hawk, now almost fully fledged, totally outsized by his step-siblings (if we must transfer the terminology appropriate to our species).  But all of us critters are fashioned from the same stardust – so wish us all luck!

And for good measure , here’s another of Terry’s photos posted on his  Fathers’ Day message.
