Both the white hawk and the Cornell hawk are stuck on their eggs - very near hatch.

She is a beauty

WHITE HAWK
Angel & Tom have / HAD a baby!
April 29, 2023 
At dawn I see a shell with a baby hawk under Angel

The egg hatched overnight.
In the morning Angel flew off for breakfast and mate Tom arrived to something wiggly in the nest.  I dont know if he stepped on it accidently or what, but its dead.  Poor Angel cried over it.

Quick View of Hatching Eggs as Big Red Takes Over Incubation

Big Red arrives back at the nest and settles in on the eggs as Arthur departs. After a few minutes of rearranging, all is calm on the nest high above campus.

Baby News!!!
Red Tailed Hawks Cornell University Ithaca NY Arthur & Big Red
EGGS LAID March 30, April 2, April 5
Congratulations Big Red & Arthur!!!


First Egg Hatches at the #CornellHawks! Welcome to the world M1 | May 6, 2023https://youtu.be/EZjFyNbryoQvia cornell labs bird cam

A Red-tailed Hawk pair has been nesting above Cornell University’s athletic fields since 2012. They have made use of two different light towers for their nest sites. In 2012, 2015, and 2018–2021 they used a tower near Fernow Hall, and in 2013, 2014, and 2016, they used the tower nearest Weill Hall. We installed cameras at both of these sites to get a better look at the intimate behavior of these well-known birds as they raise their young amid the bustle of a busy campus.

A little history on the pair...

Arthur on the left Big Red on the right...

Big Red is banded on her right leg. From banding records we know she was banded in nearby Brooktondale, New York, during her first autumn in 2003.
Arthur was first spotted on Cornell University campus as a fledgling in 2016. He is unbanded. The pair first spent time together in April 2017, after Big Red’s previous mate, Ezra, had died. The hawks completed their first breeding season together in 2018.
Big Red’s former mate Ezra and her had raised successful broods every year from 2012–2016.  He died in March 2017.
