Red-tailed Hawk Story: Onward Toward Nesting Season!
How we love to see Big Red and Ezra getting ready for nesting season! The pair have been working on both the Fernow and Weill nests – and of course, mating. Ez has also been bringing BR gifts of food. Their activities have been well documented both on the Cornell Hawks cam (with thanks to keys for great camera work) and by our hardworking BOGs (with thanks to Karel & BOGette, Woodg, trtldove, and others.) Here are a few pictures, scaps, and videos. As always, for many more fantastic HD pictures and videos, visit Karel and BOGette’s Livestream channel.
As a reminder, here are the historical laying, hatch, and fledge dates since 2012. Thanks to GP for maintaining this chart!
