Hawk Cam

There is a pair of Red-tailed Hawks that have had a nest above Cornell University's athletic fields and the university has installed a live web cam over the nest. As I write this there are 2 eggs in the nest. You will be able to watch live stream as the hawks take turns incubating the eggs and raise their chicks. There is also a chat for watchers to discuss what is going on in the nest as it happens. Below is a screen shot that I captured this afternoon. To check-out the birds go to http://www.livestream.com/cornellhawks. The camera operates 24/7, although there is not much to see at night.
