This video says about itself:
Big Red laid her first egg of the 2013 breeding season at 5:40 P.M. EDT on March 14, 2013. This highlight clip shows some of the first moments where the egg was visible followed by a visit 20 minutes later by both Big Red and Ezra.
The Cornell Lab of Ornithology in the USA writes about this:
While we’ve been preparing for another busy cams season, Big Red and Ezra came up with a surprise for us: an egg laid yesterday evening, March 14! The pair had moved their nest to a different light pole overlooking the same athletics field at Cornell, and we’ve been working hard for the past two weeks to install wiring and cams at the new nest site. Although the live feed wasn’t up and running yesterday, the new cam captured the moment in this video clip when Big Red stood up and revealed the egg. With a possible second egg coming in the next day or two, we don’t want you to miss anything, so we’ve decided to go live even though the signal may drop occasionally as we troubleshoot some networking issues. Thanks for your patience!
