Watch an adprable red-Tailed Hawk Hatch Live on Nest Cam
If you’ve never lost hours of your life to a mesmerizing nest cam, now is a good time to start. As of yesterday, Big Red and Ezra have two brand new, super fuzzy red-tailed hawk chicks in their nest with one more still to hatch.
The Cornell Lab of Ornithology has a livestreaming camera aimed at the nest, which is high up on a light pole above the campus. You can watch as the parents feed and care for the hatchlings, and maybe even catch the third chick breaking out of its shell.
A couple years ago, we were entranced by an eagle nest cam in Decorah Iowa and, along with a bunch of our readers, watched the eaglets from hatching to fledging. Eagles are incredibly attentive parents that take turns keeping the family warm and hunting. We’re looking forward to seeing how Big Red and Ezra raise their brood.
