The newly hatched hawk, still damp, can be seen while the adult feeds the 1st chick. The older chick bites the prey, egg & sibling in a close up view. Both adults are seen in the video. Recorded on Apr 23 & 24, 2012. A Red-tailed Hawk pair has been nesting on a light pole 80 feet above Cornell University's athletic fields on Tower Road for at least the past four years. The female, nicknamed "Big Red" in honor of her alma mater, is slightly larger, with a darker head, nape and throat, and is banded on her right leg. The male, nicknamed "Ezra" after the co-founder of Cornell University, is banded on his left leg. He's a bit smaller and has golden-tawny feathers on his face and head, and a paler neck than the female.
