Last year, as I recall, we followed the adventures of the two red-tailed hawks at Cornell, Ezra (male) and Big Red (female). Well, the hawkcam is up again and alert reader Kevin informs me of this:
I don’t know whether you’ve noticed but Big Red and Ezra are back at the Cornell Hawk Cam [JAC: live video at the link]
They moved nests this year so the cam was down for a bit while they put new ones in, but there are currently two eggs. Of course, the real action won’t start for a month or so, when we’ll get to see the usual pile of innards and pigeon feet cluttering the nest!
Here’s a screenshot. I’m not sure what the egg gestation time is for Buteo jamaicensis, but I’m sure one of our readers can tell us when the eggs are likely to hatch (one egg was laid March 15, the other yesterday).
