Eagle - Nurture
Bear - Nature
Other, explained below.
I vote neither. They will both be crushed by the badger.
the bear will win, esp. if it can get hold of the eagle, then the eagle finsihed, otherwise the eagle might try to swoop and scratch and bite but the bear could easily swat the bird away.
Question for the naturists:
Which is more important - the undisturbed hibernation of a bear or the procreation of a protected national icon?
I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?
Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.
Six seasons and a movie!
I was a bear in a past life. I would have never done anything like this. I wonder, if the eagles pester the bear, will it leave on its own? Eventually it will move out. I wonder if that will be too late for the eagles.
Anyone want to adopt a dog?
[joking] Did that bear get a certificate of occupancy for that thing? It might not be up to code for the use you know...
Maybe we should just cut down the tree to remove any doubt. [joking]

Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

Are you sure you're not hurt ?
No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
Broke parts take a little longer, though.

I am torn. A bear (Beorn) was instrumental in saving the Hobbits in The Hobbit, then the Eagles were, too, in LOTR. OK, I go with the Bear, they're fuzzier.
