Red-tailed Hawks at Cornell are ready to fledge
Jun 5, 2012

It's been 43 days since #1 hatched - here's the 1st of 13 screen shots:

My Birds of Virginia book says 45-46 days to fledge. They grow amazingly fast. I can see why the parents shove them out - they can't catch enough food to feed them any longer

Here's the link to the live video:

You have to wait a few seconds, but can then switch to HD (settings at bottom) and go full screen. There are three fledglings.
