Young red-tailed hawk preens and fledges, video

This video from New York state in the USA says about itself:

Red-tailed Hawk Chick, H2, Fledges While Preening! – June 8, 2018

Watch H2 fledge accidentally while preening on the fledge ledge. First reports from BOGs Karel and Bogette are that the hawk landed safely and made its way into a nearby tree. More to come!

A Red-tailed Hawk pair has been nesting above Cornell University’s athletic fields since at least the 2012, making use of two different light towers for their nest sites. In 2012 and 2015, they used a tower near Fernow Hall, and in 2013, 2014, and 2016, they used the tower nearest Weill Hall. We installed cameras at both of these sites to get a better look at the intimate behavior of these well-known birds as they raise their young amid the bustle of a busy campus.
