MIT Hawkcam (Spring 2004)

Spring has arrived in Cambridge, which often marks the return of nesting Red-tailed Hawks to the MIT campus. This video features a special spring in 2004, when a mating pair of Red-tailed Hawks built a nest in front of Building 9. By chance, the nesting spot allowed Academic Media Production Services to capture the hawks and even provide a popular 24x7 live webcast that became known as the MIT Hawkcam. The Hawkcam showed the hawks' carnivorous feeding habits and the eventual first flight of the fledglings. This video was first screened at MIT's 2004 Commencement Exercises and can be viewed in its entirety at the From the Vault collection at TechTV.
