Red kites; slow motion; bacon. What's not to love?
Earlier this month a pair of red-tailed hawks built a nest at NYU's Bobst Library, outside the window of the office of University President John Sexton. Bobby and Violet (named after the Library and NYU's school color) have been sitting on three eggs for the last month, with a webcam running a live feed. Based on a photo taken last night and analysis from hawk experts, it is believed that at least one of the eggs has begun hatching.

Gosh, hawks! A live feed of 100% Naked Chicks at the MIT HawkCam. They preen, they sleep, and they watch you watching them. Now to settle in for a long afternoon waiting for Mom to show up.
