Cornell red-tailed hawks nest update


This video from the USA says about itself:

Red-Tailed Hawk vs. Rattler

In the scorching desert sky, a hawk spies prey — a venomous rattler! Who wins out in this battle of the predators?

From the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in the USA:

May 6, 2015

Two hatched out, one to go…

As thousands of viewers watched, the second egg hatched in the nest of Red-tailed Hawks Big Red and Ezra during the afternoon of May 5. Viewers were captivated as Ezra stood over the hatchling, tenderly removing excess material from the egg as the hatchling emerged (watch highlight).

Our first nestling, F1, has already received several meals over the last 48 hours (watch highlight). Now downy and fresh, F1 appears twice as large as the egg that contained it just a few days ago. The third egg should hatch in the next couple days—don’t miss the chance to see it happen live! Watch now.
