Red-tailed Hawk Chicks

The two red-tailed hawks on the Cornell campus, laid three eggs March 14, 17 and 20. Two of them hatched very recently. There is a nestcam installed so the public can watch the triumphs – and challenges – that wild raptors such as these hawks experience. 

Today we did some screen grabs from a food drop (of snake!) as the female fed the chicks.

You can read more about red-tailed hawks on our website here. You can also read about some our education red-tailed hawks – Casper, Omaha, Jamaica and Alula – here
