PORTLAND, Ore. -- A pair of mating Red-tail hawks has reunited again atop a downtown Portland building. And once again Portland will get to watch from egg lay to flyaway.

Last year, the hawks laid their first egg sometime between March 3 and March 5, according to the Audobon Society's Bob Sallinger. Eggs are usually laid between 24 and 48 hours apart, and in 2009 the pair produced three eggs.

Of those, two juveniles survived.

Raptor Cam is a partnership between KGW and the Audubon Society of Portland. The live web camera has watched over the hawks since the 2007 nesting season.
