Wild red-shouldered hawks nest at Georgia Southern

Red-shoulder hawks cam 2


A pair of wild red-shouldered hawks have again returned to the Georgia Southern University Center for Wildlife Education and Lamar Q Ball, Jr. Raptor Center to nest atop an 80-foot yellow pine tree on the Wildlife Center’s grounds. This year, the pair have laid three eggs and are dedicated to the incubation process. One egg has hatched and the other two are expected to begin hatching any day now. The Wildlife Center, in collaboration with Georgia Southern University’s Information Technology Division, is providing a live stream video of the event available here. The live stream provides natural history insights into the world of the red-shouldered hawk. To minimize any disturbance, the camera was installed before egg-laying began. The Wildlife Center supports and promotes the honest portrayal of nature.

Update: April 7, 2016

Two of the three eggs have now hatched.
