this is great
This video is called “Born Free” A Red-Tailed Hawk Chick.
From the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in the USA:
Hawk Hatch Has Begun!
We’re excited to share the news with you that the first egg in the 2014 Cornell hawks nest has begun pipping! Earlier today a small hole was seen forming and there is a high likelihood of seeing a new downy nestling enter the world over the next 24 hours. “Pipping” refers to the process of the chick initially breaking through the shell, using a hard projection on its bill called the egg tooth. The resulting hole is the “pip” that the chick then enlarges to finish hatching. This year’s pip follows 38 days of stalwart incubation by Big Red and Ezra in often windy, rainy, and snowy conditions.
Don’t miss your chance to see the young hawk emerge and share your excitement with the cams community at http://allaboutbirds.org/cornellhawks
