Baby Bird Leaves Nest, Survives Hawk Attack, Gets Eaten by Crocodile

December 12, 2018

When destiny is out to get you…

An African harrier hawk was searching for a snack amongst the weaver nests when this baby weaver took to the water in a getaway attempt only to get snapped up into the jaws of a young crocodile.

 Juan Geyser (38), told Latestsightings.com: “I arrived at Sunset dam on the H4-1 and settled in to enjoy the sights and sounds.

I happened to notice that there was a hungry-looking hawk hanging around the weaver's nests. He seemed to be in a hurry to tear the nest apart and gain a quick meal. I took my camera out hoping to capture some action and was not disappointed.

I watched in amazement as this little bird fled the nest in fear and landed on the water like a little bobbing rubber duck. What, at first, looked like an amazing escape only landed up being short-lived as a small crocodile was lurking about in the waters and happened to notice the weaver’s movements.

WATCH:

 

In the blink of an eye, the weaver was gone as the croc swallowed him whole.

I felt sorry for the bird but this was what we had come to see -wildlife in action.”
