Red-tailed hawk couple visits nest


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

Big Red and Arthur Visit Their Nest Site (edited) – Feb. 1, 2019

Watch the Red-tailed Hawks visit their nest site high above Cornell’s campus. February’s arrival means we’ll hopefully be seeing more of these two as they prepare the nest for the upcoming breeding season.

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.
