It has been a week since my last post about the Red-tailed Hawk and Great Blue Heron nests. There are now four eggs on the Heron nest and one egg on the Hawk nest is about to hatch; pipping is evident. Web cam viewers are brimming with anticipation. It was cold again this morning here in Central New York. Sunlight warmed up the area, but I still wore a winter coat and gloves on my walk through the park today. Hopefully for all eggs involved, the warm up will continue.
Here are some of the week’s screen captures of the Great Blue Herons on Sapsucker Pond, followed by the Red-tailed Hawks on the Cornell University campus. The date and time stamp appear in the bottom left corner of each screen capture.
