A baby bird tried to get away from a hawk that was searching for food in its nest by jumping into a lake.

Soon after the bird swam for its life, a crocodile spotted it, pursued it and ate it. 

The video was posted on YouTube by Kruger Sightings and according to their post, the video was taken by Juan Geyser who was visiting the Kruger at the time. 

Geyser was quoted saying he noticed the hawk and immediately got his camera out to capture some action.

Geyser (38), told “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. 

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.”
