Bald eagle who was ‘hatching’ a rock becomes step-dad

This is such a touching story about fatherhood.

Murphy, a male bald eagle who was living alone in the World Bird Sanctuary, Valley Park, Missouri, was so eager to be a dad that he tried to “hatch” a rock.

His dream came true when the Sanctuary replaced the rock with a rescue eaglet.

Murphy puts humans to shame, especially men who “sow their wild oats,” abandon the babies they sired, or are cold or abusive fathers.
