This video from New York state in the USA says about itself:
Selected highlights from time spent with a mated pair of Red-tailed Hawks (Buteo jamaicensis) living on the Cornell University campus in Ithaca, New York, 2/18/2017. Big Red is the female, Ezra is the male.
From the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in the USA today:
As many members of the cam community already know, the Cornell Hawks cam lost its beloved male Red-tailed Hawk, Ezra, on March 19th. We’d like to thank the cam community for their outpouring of support surrounding the news of Ezra’s death, and we continue to invite everyone to share their thoughts and memories of Ezra in pictures or words in the commenting section of Ezra’s tribute page.
It has been inspiring to learn that so many members of the community have been touched by watching [Ezra’s female mate] Big Red and Ezra raise their chicks on cam over the past 5 years, and it is evident that Ezra will always be remembered as a loyal mate, attentive parent, and true ambassador for raptor education. To celebrate this legacy, the Cornell Lab has been working with colleagues on campus, along with input from the hawk cam community, to provide a commemoration of Ezra’s life. We will be sure to provide updates as these plans come together.
In the meantime, relive the memories from the Red-tailed Hawk cam by watching highlights from previous years. Also, keep current on Big Red’s activities by following the updates from our Birders on the Ground in the News section of the Red-tailed Hawks cam page. Bird Cams would like to say a big thanks to Karel and Cindy Sedlacek and our other BOGs for keeping everyone current on Big Red as we wait to see what the future holds.
