KJRH Hawks' Nest

For those who just can’t wait, here’s a link for a continuing view of the nest of Kay and Jay. The pictures come from the Red-tail Cam of KJRH Channel 2 out of Tulsa, Oklahoma. This pair of Red-tails nested on the local TV tower and the station, instead of being unhappy and attempting to oust the birds, embraced the pair and turned a camera on them. The CAM has a nice crisp close feed and an archive of the highlights.
(Oklahoma being a different environment than we've been watching, I can't wait to see what these Red-tails will feed their eyasses. D.B.)

Kay and Jay expect a hatch in late March or early April.

The station does say however—

Sometimes that camera gets used for news or weather purposes, and the encoder also gets used on occasion so you may see some video of things other than hawks :). Most of the time, however, you'll be able to follow along as Kay and Jay guard their eggs -- and hopefully, raise their babies!
I asked John Blakeman if there was anything new on the Plum Brook Station Bald Eagle nest he's been keeping an eye on:
The formel just continues to sit and incubate.

The first Ohio eagle hatched a few days ago. 160 nests have been discovered in the state this year, a remarkable record.

It's that time of year. A whole lot of waiting going on.
