The Cornell Lab of Ornithology is located in Ithaca, New York. 80 feet above Cornell University’s athletic field, is a Red-Tailed Hawks nest. The university installed a live feed in 2012 to get a close-up view of this couple. Big Red, age 9, is the female and Ezra, age 7, is the male.

Big Red laid 3 eggs in March 2012; an incubation period of 28-32 days. The 1st one hatched on April 23, 2012 at 1:53 p.m EST. Today the 2nd one is almost fully hatched and there is a pip coming from the 3rd egg.

Big Red does leave the nest once in a while but Ezra typically brings her prey such as voles, squirrels, sparrows, and pigeons every couple of hours so she can feed herself and the hatchlings.

Go to this wonderful site, the Red-Tailed Hawk live cam and view the nest of this majestic pair.

Also there is a pair of Blue Herons in a nest with 5 eggs. These live cams are so exciting. View the Great Blue Herons’ nest. Recently there was an owl attack on April 9, and one of the eggs was damaged. The mother is still laying on all 5 of the eggs. They are expected to start hatching around the end of April or first of May. There is a YouTube of the attack with the Great Horned Owl.

The Cornell Lab of Ornithology site is so full of information.  You can look up bird descriptions, watch YouTube’s, listen to bird sounds, and find out just about anything you want to know about bird species. I am a “birder” and this is the site I always go to for information before posting something. It is a great frame of reference for anyone needing accurate information.

Hi Jeff,

Thanks so much for stopping. I have been watching this cam off and on since last month. I also just watched the owl attack on the blue herons and it was amazing. That mother bird fought the owl off and she sounded scary! Wow the wrath of a mother is nothing that owl wanted to mess with.

This is a spectacular site that we can all learn from.

Hi Myrl,

Thanks so much for the nice compliment. As the hatchlings get bigger, the mom will be away more and more and it will be easier to see them; hopefully all three will make it as they have a low expectancy rate; like 20% which is why they do not want to name them yet.

Hi Myrl,

Thanks so much for the great honor of being featured in your Photos group.

 I have wasted a lot of time today watching the cams but it is a once a year event and so rewarding to watch and learn. I am sure hoping the great blue heron's eggs will be OK and the owl will stay away. I am sure that predator will be back. I hope the mom doesn't leave like the hawk mom does.
