Hawk's Nest Webcam

Two red-tailed hawks, one male and one female, have a nest on the west side of the STEPS building at Lehigh. On April 20th their eggs started to hatch. A webcam is installed above their nest to provide a live feed for anyone to watch the family.

Fascinated by the birds’ activity, George Yasko, Lehigh’s field projects laboratory manager, had the idea to install a webcam to share a live feed of the hawks’ nest with the Lehigh community. His idea became reality last fall when a high-end web camera was installed with the help of the Office of Sustainability, Library & Technology Services and Facilities Services.

You're watching a WILD hawk's nest so keep in mind that anything can happen. While we hope that the nestlings grow into juvenile red-tail hawks under our web-cam watch, keep in mind that things like sibling rivalry, predators, and natural disaster can affect this hawk family at any given time. Lehigh University wishes Engi and Neer the best with their growing family!

With the help of students, faculty, staff, alumni and local friends, the hawks have names! After polls went live on Facebook and Twitter, the Lehigh community voted to name our feathered friends "Engi" (pictured here on the left) and "Neer (more white feathers - pictured here on the right)!
