We've become addicted to this webcam, a red-tailed hawk nest on the ledge of a building on the campus of University of Wisconsin-Madison.
When we first came across it, it was just red-tailed hawk mom (or dad — they take turns) sitting on eggs — not a lot of action. Now that there are babies, we can't turn it off. Mom and dad fly in with a steady stream of unidentifiable dead critters to feed them. It's fascinating to watch.
Daniel got to see the first chick hatch. We're now up to two chicks, and with still one egg unhatched.
