Over at the Cornell Hawkcam, a redtailed hawk chick has finally appeared, and the snow seems to be melting. Alert reader Kevin sent me a link to a screenshot of that first chick. Here’s the little fuzzball, already with a wicked beak:
Oh – thank you for posting. For some reason the hawk cam won’t play.
As I learned yesterday hanging out there for a few hours, the camera does periodically shut itself down and do some internal stuff and then reboot itself. From my memory, it’s a fairly short process . . .
thanks am watching now (& should be in bed…)
Thanks a lot for posting this link – it has everything – drama, romance, struggle against nature, not to mention pigeon guts. It’s addictive. Now I’ll never get my Caribbean rain climatology study done . . .
and nothing to do with Jesus-man.
But it does have pretty Easter eggs and fuzzy chicks! Doesn’t that count?
Snowfall on campus was 6 inches as of 8 AM, but wet, and much of it has indeed melted. Downtown, which is ~ 130 meters lower, it didn’t even accumulate. (No shoveling for me!)
A counter-clockwise weather system is stalling out over western NY-PA. Precipitation for several more days until it clears out. Temps near freezing at night, but should warm up a bit in the daytime.
If you’ve got sound, you can hear the buses passing underneath.
Good viewing right now; the parent has moved to give a view of the chick, and is rolling the remaining eggs.
