Red-tailed hawks live here in the Pacific Northwest, but you probably haven’t had a chance to see their babies up close. Now, thanks to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, you can observe some of their cousins via a webcam on top of a light pole near an athletic field on the Cornell University campus.
Click here for access to the webcam. (Remember the time difference and that darkness will arrive there sooner.) The video above was taken today, April 22.
Join thousands of people around the country who are watching live. The first egg hatched at about 6 a.m. today with a second chick emerging shortly after. A third will hatch within the next day or two. Don’t miss the action! And what a great opportunity this is to share the joy and wonder of nature with children. I will post additional video as it becomes available.
