Red-shouldered Hawk being raised by a Great-horned Owl!!

At Pinnacles National Park in California Great-Horned Owl has taken a Red-shouldered Hawk as prey for her young but apparently has changed her mind and is now raising the Red-shouldered Hawk as her own young beside her Great-Horned Owlet. Check out the full incredible pictures HERE

This is very reminiscent of the Red-tailed Hawk that was successfully raised by Bald Eagles in Sidney, BC last year; see HERE for that story.
