Hawk Hatch Alert!

Spring is in the air here in Ithaca, New York, and that can mean only one thing: baby birds! Our Cornell Red-tailed Hawks have been an exciting addition to our springtime birding over the last four years, giving us new opportunities to learn about and enjoy the daily lives of a hawk family perched high above the Cornell campus. Now they’re poised to bring a fourth set of young hawks into the world.

Since our first year broadcasting this nest, the hawks’ eggs have hatched around 35-39 days after being laid. This year’s first egg was laid on March 28, and today we’re 34 days into the incubation period. Submit your guess as to when the first downy hatchling will be seen on cam and you could win an embroidered Cornell Lab stadium blanket, perfect for spring outings.

You can comment and keep up with the day-to-day happenings on our cams on the Bird Cams Facebook page and on the Cornell Hawks Twitter Feed.

Thank you for watching and good luck!
