Last Cornell young red-tailed hawk fledges

This video from the USA says about itself:

Last Nestling Fledges from Cornell Hawks Nest!

June 13, 2013

After carefully considering the drop for the last few days, the third nestling from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology‘s Red-tailed Hawk (nicknamed “D3”) nest opened its wings and took flight at 8:07 P.M. on June 12, 2013.

The Cornell Lab writes about this video:

On June 13, the last Red-tailed Hawk nestling (nicknamed “D3”) remaining in the nest chose the last hour of evening light to take its first flight, launching purposefully into the air and disappearing from the camera’s view (watch the highlight). It took D3 a full week longer than its nestmates to take its first flight, and kept many viewers’ hearts fluttering as it flapped around the platform in the days leading up to fledging.
