Nesting in the snow

This is where I'd guess it's not fun being a hawk with a nest this time of year! This is Ezra, at the Cornell Labs nest, in this morning's snow. He's only been there about a half hour, and is getting snowed in. On the other hand, mom, Big Red, was there all night. She didn't look quite so snowed in as this before she flew off to find breakfast. We are assured, however, that the nest bowl (and 2 eggs) as well as Ezra himself, are all at a toasty 100+ degrees. It just looks miserable.
