Second is a red-tailed hawk in Ithaca, NY. One of the three eggs has hatched! The other two should be within days.

Update: I caught a better pic of mom this morning. See third pic.
I have been trying to capture images of female and male on the nest to see the differences. I think you can see in the top image, that if she was turned fully sideways like the bottom image, that her tail feathers would hang onto that ledge. Where on the bottom photo his feathers dont reach the ledge.
