Bird’s-eye view

A camera 80 feet off the ground above a Cornell athletic field is streaming up-close views of a Red-tailed Hawk pair’s nest via the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s All About Birds website.

The nest should be active for at least the next two months. The female laid eggs on March 16 and March 19, and she may lay a third. Once the clutch of eggs is complete, it’ll be about 28 days before the first young hatches.

The ornithology lab is building a full-featured BirdCams site that will launch in late April. It will feature many more species, including streams from their NestCams project as well as new species such as Osprey, Black Vulture and Great Horned Owl.
