What a sad day in Ithaca, NY. Red-tailed Hawk Ezra, Big Red’s mate for many seasons, has died. He was a special creature, and I will miss his appearance at their nest site on the web cam.
Ezra had not been seen on the Cornell Hawks cam or on the Cornell campus for the past several days, and worries had been mounting. Sadly, Ezra was euthanized due to a severe wing fracture that would not allow him to fly. The article can be read at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology website, All About Birds.
