This is a cam on two red-tailed hawks nesting on Cornell University campus, on a lighting tower adjacent to the athletic grounds. The cam is sponsored by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.

The cam image is very high quality and can be viewed in HD by clicking on the Quality tab along the bottom edge of the cam window. The cam is a PTZ and is periodically adjusted to zoom in on the nest bowl or pan around to the area around the nest.

The cam page also has information on the two adults, who are both banded.

All three chicks fledged. However, E3 was injured shortly after fledging and was rescued. He eventually recuperated from his injury and has since become an education bird. Read the entire story HERE:



The female, nicknamed “Big Red” in honor of her alma mater, is slightly larger, with a darker head, nape and throat, and 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, making her nearly nine years old.

Red-tailed Hawk MaleThe male, nicknamed "Ezra" after the co-founder of Cornell University, is banded on his left leg. He’s a bit smaller and has golden-tawny feathers on his face and head, and a paler neck than the female. He is at least seven years old and was first banded in 2006 as an adult bird on Judd Falls Road near the Cornell campus.
