My colleagues at AMPS have been following the maturation process of two red tail hawk chicks. Here’s a video clip of Natasha hatching that was shot by Craig Milanesi.

A highlight from MIT HawkCam Season Three following the two chicks, Boris and Natasha. The eggs were laid on or about March 14, 2007 and the older sibling, Boris, hatched sometime in the evening of April 19th. The younger sibling, Natasha, emerged from her egg at 5:30PM the following day, April 20. We expect the siblings to fledge sometime during the first week of June, at which time they’ll look very similar to their parents.
