An injured red-tailed hawk can no longer fly free, but her instinct to become a mother is so strong that she hatches and raises two chickens in this true and heartwarming story of interspecies friendship.

What happens when two baby chickens find themselves in a nest with a hawk? Don’t hawks usually eat chickens? Sunshine, a red-tailed hawk, can no longer fly free, but her instinct to be a mother is so strong that she builds a nest in her aviary every spring and lays two infertile eggs. One year, Kara, her caretaker, decides to try something different. She gives Sunshine two fertile chicken eggs. Sunshine patiently incubates the eggs, and then they hatch. Will the chickens recognize Sunshine as their mother? Will Sunshine accept the chicks as her own? Join zoologist Kara Hagedorn and Sunshine to find out what happens in this heartwarming story of nurture over nature.
