MIT Red Tailed Hawks (Spring, 2004)

In early spring 2004, a mating pair of red tailed hawks set up residence on the MIT campus in front of Building 9. These hawks were reported to have been building nests on the MIT campus for several years. They nested in a spot where Academic Media Production Services could capture and share a peek at a hawk's life, providing a 24x7 live webcast that we delivered that came to be known as the MIT Hawkcam. People all over campus and from around the US were watching as the two hawk chicks grew up. Particularly interesting is feeding time when the mother hawk brings the hungry chicks an assortment of delicious rodents.
