THE REAL HAWKS
Just in time to rescue the over-informed and politically weary: a high definition webcam trained upon Big Red, a red-tailed hawk incubating three eggs in a nest atop a light pole, some 80 feet above the athletic fields of Cornell University. Mama hawk’s chicks hatch in about 28 days; her feathers shift in the wind, and yes, she has a certain reassuring serenity worth pondering. A dutiful papa shows up for his shift as well.
The camera belongs to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Discover the details of this extraordinary bit of technology and bird patience here: www.allaboutbirds.org. The exact red-tailed hawk webcam address is http://www.allaboutbirds.org/page.a spx?pid=2422&ac=ac.
