LIVE at a Hawk Nest!

A new nest camera high above a Cornell University athletic field is streaming crystal-clear views of a Red-tailed Hawk nest via the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s All About Birds website. The new camera stream puts viewers 80 feet off the ground and right beside the nest, where they can watch the hawks arrive, see them taking turns incubating their two eggs, and compare notes on the two birds—the male, pictured above, has a more golden-tawny face and is slightly smaller than the female, who has been nicknamed “Big Red” for her alma mater. We’re looking for suggestions on what to name the male bird. If you’ve got an idea, enter the naming contest!
