Not without a bit of help from A Chick Called Albert.

Photographer Ken Wick says, “Probably the luckiest shot I’ve ever captured! A fearless blue jay attacking an eagle – David vs. Goliath! I call this one Eye to Eye. The look on the eagle’s face says it all.”

Bird whisperer and animal rescuer A Chick Called Albert practices some deception for a good cause.

Bird whisperer and animal rescuer A Chick Called Albert says, “Wow, I was so lucky to walk into this once in a lifetime opportunity! But these giant Nandu eggs had been laying there for weeks… would I stand any chance incubating them?”

Bird whisperer and animal rescuer A Chick Called Albert says, “A full nest of silkie eggs was in trouble after mom got attacked. I jumped in my car and took my sheep and my incubator along for the ride to a gas station, to meet the owner who had called me… When I got the eggs I thought the chances for survival of the chicks inside were pretty slim… But with a little bit of help, 9 out of 10 actually made it out into this world.”
