Welcome to 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.
From April–November 2020, we took the cam experience to the next level! Cornell Hawk cam viewers joined together with scientists and learned more about six hawk behaviors they see on screen. It was just like participating in field biology, but from our living rooms.
