Nicknamed "Spunky," the young hawk was spotted living in an eagle's nest in June. Experts initially thought his chances for survival were low. Hawks and eagles are normally mortal enemies. Hawks feed on small rodents, rabbits, and snakes, but Spunky was seen eating a flounder that he stole from one of the other eagles.  He has shown some signs of his hawk ancestry including swooping down and picking up forest debris, which young hawks do while learning to catch prey. Spunky's time with his adopted family may be short. Soon the eagles will migrate north, but hawks typically don't leave the region.

So... that's it? Him stealing food from an eagle is what determines him acting like a eagle? And here I thought that would probably just be his survival imperative to get whatever source of food he could.
Better, alternative titles "Hawk Raised by Eagles"; "Hawk Raised by Eagles: Steals Their Food 'Cuz Laziness"; "Hawk Raised by Eagles: Isn't Killed" Relevance.

I wonder what a hawk/eagle hybrid would be like. That'd be interesting to study.

This is the typical Nature vs. Nurture.
This showed literally no evidence of the hawk acting like an eagle...
Soon, he shall become jealous of his eagle brother, and then learn of his true inheritance. And thus, he shall resent his eagle family and want to plot against the world, conspiring with those that seek ill will against it. He shall desire to eventually rise to the throne of the eagles, and once and for all be the child the eagle parents never saw him as. POWER! is what he shall seek. He shall deceive many.....but ultimately fall to few. Or will he? Perhaps he shall rise again? WHO KNOWS. Little did they know....they have raised a monster. SOON he thinks.
Tyler Buckaroo
Theyre pretty simlar. What did you expect😑

When humans name you a dumb name but they don't know your real name is eye killer of the sticks.

...how did the hawk get there in the first place ?
Lol. This is so Sam Mitchell.

Hawks are raptors. So are eagles. I'm not sure how many behavioral differences there actually are.... I mean, I'm sure there are differences and there a plenty of people who know the details about what they are, but it's not like a chihuahua being adopted by panthers....
you are watching evolution in action here.
