Sparrowhawk takes on cuckoo in vicious stand-off
Kruger accommodation specials here: http://bit.ly/LatestSightingsDealsy

This Sparrowhawk did not let his cuckoo counterpart get off lightly in this battle of the birds and at one stage the feathers were literally flying….
 
31-year-old, Organ Sabiepark, who works at Sabie Park just outside the Paul Kruger Gate, was able to capture this moment on film.
 Organ tells us: “I have the best job in the entire world! Getting to spend the whole day being with animals, there is nothing like it" 
This was the first time I’ve seen an eagle killing anything.
I was working at the picnic site, as usual, when I heard a noise coming from nearby. I started looking around and suddenly spotted the Sparrowhawk strangling a Jacobin Cuckoo. 

When I watched the sighting play itself out, I felt sad about what was happening! The Sparrowhawk was biting the Jacobin Cuckoo and trying to kill it, all while the cuckoo was fighting for its life and trying to escape.
At the end, after fighting extremely long and hard, the Cuckoo managed to get away. That was in some way a great relief.”

Sparrowhawks rely on the element of surprise and as such will often follow a regular route to get close to potential prey.

Wow, I didn't realise that they plucked them while still alive! Why is the word 'tries' in the title? This cuckoo is surely going to die.

Did you know that a mother cuckoo bird actually lays it's egg in an entirely different bird species nest... best part is the cuckoo birds baby actually hatches first so it kicks the other babies out, and guess What? The parents don't even know it's not their child... EVEN WHRN THE BABY CUCKOO IS BIGGER THEN THEM!!
Joe McArdle
That is not a cuckoo bird!

I love how eagles are so majestic and stuff but hawks have the permanent expression of "I have no idea what I'm doing"

I've been in the avian field for nearly 30yrs now. Having "hands on" experience with everything from Warblers to Birds of Prey and Budgies to Macaws. So i've seen my fair share of bird encounters. This one isn't shocking your typical take down from an Accipiter which is a family of Hawks that prey pretty much exclusively on birds. And i must say this Cuckoo put up a valiant fight for it's life. They have extremely sharp beaks and the right jab can inflict serious damage. This is why when birds of prey make there kills they often lean back to prevent there heads & eyes from being struck by there prey. In most cases other birds. I kid you not folks when i say i once witnessed a male Sharp-Shinned Hawk again in the Accipiter family. Try and take down an adult American Crow. The end result was certainly NOT in the Hawk's favor. As the Crow believe it or not ended up jabbing the much smaller Hawk in the eye and the blood was flowing. Instead of escaping the Crow finished the job with a few "death blows" to the Hawks head. And before i knew it the smaller Hawk was DEAD...!!! So some of these larger Corvids should be respected because they are every bit as much a predator as birds of prey are.

The cuckoo Bird deserves it, Cuckoo Birds kill other birds children and then lay eggs in the nest they killed babies out of and then fly away to let the other bird take care of it's children...
