Science Centre camera spies on Cooper's Hawks in Regina
Camera allows people to watch chicks hatch and grow live on webcam
Move over, Keeping up with the Kardashians: the Saskatchewan Science Centre is reviving its own reality show starring a family of Cooper's Hawks.
A mother Cooper’s Hawk has made a nest in Wascana Park and laid eggs. Over the next few months the people can watch as the chicks hatch and grow.
Last year, the Wascana Centre Authority and the Science Centre found a Cooper’s Hawk nest in Wascana Park and set up a webcam.
The mother hawk laid five eggs and they hatched on camera last summer.
Cooper's Hawk mothers sit on the nest, while male birds’ build the nest and provide food for the family until the chicks leave the nest after about three months.
Cooper’s Hawks are a protected species in Canada.
