Cornell red-tailed hawk chicks have fledged


This video from the USa is called Cornell Hawks Highlights 2014.

From the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in the USA:

June 24, 2015

Up, up, and away…

One by one, the Cornell Hawks nestlings have departed the nest for their first flights. The oldest (nicknamed “F1”) took wing on June 21 and returned the next day to the platform. The youngest (F3) was the next to go, leaping from the platform at midday on June 22 after being harassed a bit by its remaining sibling. Not to be outdone, F2 departed the nest a few hours after F3, and now the young Red-tailed Hawks are busily exploring the nearby rooftops and treetops. Although Big Red and Ezra will continue to provide food and guidance for the fledgling hawks for another two months, the hawks will be seen on camera less as they range more widely.

Watch the Cam.

Hawk Chat Closing

With an empty nest now, the Cornell Hawks live chat is scheduled to wind down this coming Sunday, June 28, from 5:00 P.M. to 7:00 P.M. EDT. We’re looking forward to celebrating the season with another spectacular closing this year. Thanks to everyone for watching and sharing the experience!
