Hawk raised by eagles behaves like its adoptive family

"Spunky" is an apt nickname for a baby hawk adopted by a family of bald eagles in Sidney, British Columbia.

The red-tailed hawklet moved into the nest and found a home.

Spunky picked up some eagle-inspired habits, such as chowing down on fish rather than a hawk's usual meal of rodents or snakes.

National Geographic posted a video about the extraordinary hawk on Monday.

The footage comes in part from the Hancock Wildlife Foundation, a bald eagle conservation organization that operates livestreaming nest cams.

Nest watchers first spotted the hawklet in June.
