Live ‘hawkcam’ focused on red-tailed hawk’s nest
The University of Wisconsin – Madison’s Space Science & Engineering Center (in conjunction with the Department of Atmospheric Science, of course) has a series of cameras they normally use to monitor weather patterns.
However, one camera appears to have been appropriated for a possibly less useful but definitely cuter purpose: it’s focused on the nest of a pair of red-tailed hawks who decided to raise their family on a lofty perch overlooking the campus.
Like most livecams, there are long periods of boredom punctuated by excitement, but the baby hawks (which are called eyas) have already hatched and are subjected to regular feeding and grooming by their parents, so it’s at least more riveting than day time television.
