Cornell red-tailed hawk chicks born

Watch now to check on Red-tailed Hawk chicks!

We’re thrilled to share the news that two eggs have begun to hatch in the nest of Big Red and Ezra, the Red-tailed Hawks featured on our live cam streaming from the Cornell campus. Thousands of viewers yesterday saw the first glimpse of a tiny beak visible through a hole in the egg as Big Red looked on. Viewers also spotted a small hole in a second egg. The third egg is due to hatch within a few days.

With a shift in weather overnight, viewers woke this morning to find Big Red protecting the eggs from several inches of snow in the nest. Temperatures are expected to warm later today as onlookers eagerly wait for further signs of hatching.

Please join us to watch as life unfolds at the nest! We hope you will forward this message to share with friends and family. Thanks!
