Eggs are hatching on Cornell hawk cam

There’s been a lot of excitement today as the first pips appeared on three Red-tailed Hawk eggs in a nest on the campus of Cornell University, home to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.

The nest, 80 feet up on a light pole at the university’s athletic fields, is the subject of live-streaming camera that offers viewers an intimate look at the lives of the pair nicknamed “Big Red” and “Ezra”.

Cornell posted a still frame of the pips on Flickr earlier this afternoon; have a look here. Follow @cornellhawks on Twitter for updates, and read more about the hawk cam project here.

Here in Holyoke, I got word today from Linda Henderson that the hawks on Race Street have hatched. I’ll have my eye on them this week.
