This video from the USA says about itself:
May 16, 2010
This is a video chronicle of a Red-Tailed Hawk chick from one to six weeks, after hatching in its nest high in a Saguaro cactus. It has all been condensed into an sub eleven minute video with other wildlife scenes mixed in. I do very little talking during this video and try to let the pictures speak for themselves.
From the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in the USA:
Bird Cams News Flash: Hawk hatch has begun!
We’re excited to share the news with you that the first egg in the CornellHawks nest has begun pipping! Earlier today a small hole was seen forming and there is a high likelihood of seeing a new downy nestling enter the world over the next 24 hours. “Pipping” refers to the process of the chick initially breaking through the shell, using a hard projection on its bill called the egg tooth. The resulting hole is the “pip” that the chick then enlarges to finish hatching. The hatch follows 38 days of stalwart incubation by Big Red and Ezra in often windy and rainy conditions (check out some highlights on YouTube).
Don’t miss your chance to see the young hawk emerge and share your excitement with the cams community at http://allaboutbirds.org/cornellhawks. As if hatching hawks aren’t enough to keep you busy, be sure to also check out the Great Blue Heron cam (http://allaboutbirds.org/cornellherons) where last night a fourth egg was laid during the darkness of night.
