Live Cam to Capture Hawk Eggs Hatching on Campus

Posted on: March 14, 2019

If you are among the thousands of followers of the University’s red-tailed hawk family, you will have a better bird’s-eye view of them, thanks to a new high-definition, pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) camera system on Lyman Hall. Anne Marie Patti Higgins ’76, G’90 has donated the cameras in memory of her husband, Thomas Higgins L’67, a Syracuse City Court judge and an avid birdwatcher. "I anticipate a clutch of eggs within the next week or two," she says. Click on the University’s red-tailed hawk nest cam to view the family’s activities in real time, including flights to and from their nests.
