Watch as Red-tailed Hawks care for their eggs and raise their young at a nest high above the Cornell University campus in Ithaca, New York. Look for Big Red, the female, with a band on her right leg. Ezra, her mate, has a band on his left leg. Big Red laid the first egg on March 19. Hatching is expected to begin around April 26. The young will stay in the nest for about 6-7 weeks before they learn to fly.
