Red Tailed Hawks Take Flight

Watch the red tailed hawks in this video from Cornell Ornithological Labs from eggs to flight. After mama hawk lays three eggs, mom and pop steadily keep watch. When the fuzzy chicks are born, they take turns bringing them chunks of fresh meat for breakfast. As feathers develop, mom and pop begin to get that worried look common to the parents of  teenagers everywhere. Then, one day, the first one flies!
