Ever see a predator commit suicide?
In a video captured at Duke Farms, a Central Jersey estate turned environmental center, a red-tailed hawk dares to fly at a bald eagles' nest where eggs were about to hatch.
In a major miscalculation, the hawk fails to see an eagle sitting on the nest and looking directly at it, or, cocky from triumphing over mice and little bunnies, thinks it's super-sneaky-fast or king of any beak-and-claw fight.
Four seconds into the video, the hawk appears.
Six seconds into the video, the eagle is stomping on the hawk like some feathery doormat.
It's hard to tell how long the hawk survives - maybe 30 seconds? - since the beatdown/bite-down lasts a few minutes.
