Welcome to the Hawk Happenings!
The Cornell Hawks cam follows a pair of Red-tailed Hawks that have been nesting above Cornell University’s athletic fields since 2012. The Cornell Lab of Ornithology installed cameras 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 college campus.
We now have the chance to take the cam experience to the next level! As a part of Bird Cams Lab, Cornell Hawk cam viewers join together with scientists to learn more about the hawk family we see on screen. It’s like participating in field biology from your living room, and the observations and questions posed by the community have the potential to lead to tomorrow’s discoveries.
