Cornell Hawks 2014 Highlights

For over 100 days viewers watched the lives of a very special Red-tailed Hawk family nesting 80ft above an athletics field on a light pole at the Cornell University Campus in Ithaca, New York. For the third year we experienced what it takes for two devoted parents to raise three healthy young hawks in the wild. The Cornell Lab would like to thank the many people involved in watching and helping to protect these enchanting birds. Without the devotion of a community of dedicated people we would not be able to show these birds to the World. A special thank you to everyone who donated to keep the cams running, your support means everything to us. Thanks for watching, see you in 2015.

Still Here

Stan delivered a fish to the nest early in the morning, with no sign of the remaining juvenile to retrieve it. Viewers thought that the last youngster may have started her journey south, however she was seen later that morning calling on the nest. Stan showed up shortly after the young bird landed to deliver a fish. Both birds are still in the area for now. It should not be long until they start to head south.
