Bobby keeps watch as Sadie circles about - September 24th, 2016

I had the great fortune to see both Bobby and Sadie at Washington Square Park today. I could only pass through the park briefly so the timing was especially lucky.

Bobby was on one of his favorite flag poles, looking over his domain:


Sadie flew up the street alongside him five minutes later. She flew in wide circles over the block behind him. She then circled close to him before disappearing from my view. I only managed to get this halfway decent shot of her: 


Bobby stayed put: 


These gentlemen were on the Silver Center rooftop. Surely they were admiring Bobby or pointing out Sadie's flying in the distance. ;)


I had to leave but had quite a nice 15 minutes or so with the Hawks.

A fellow Hawk-watcher saw them seen sitting near each other last night before they separated for their respective roosts.

Bobby at bedtime - September 22nd, 2016

Tonight was the first time I've laid my eyes on Bobby since August 8th so I was pretty happy to see him tonight. A fellow Hawk-watcher had seen him about but this was the first time for me since then.

He was on the Judson Memorial Church cross when I arrived at Washington Square Park:


He relaxed on his perch for 20 minutes then flew east toward NYU's Education Building:






The sun had set and it got darker and darker. He flew off his antenna after 15 minutes:


He looked like he was going to land at the back of NYU's Silver Center to roost. A fellow Hawk-watcher and I looked for him for several minutes but we didn't get to see where he tucked in. He was pretty hop-scotchy so it's possible the Silver Center was not his final destination for the evening.

Both Hawks seen last few nights - September 21st, 2016

I've been taking advantage of the Hawk quietness over the last few days to catch up on personal responsibilities but! I can assure you both Bobby and Sadie have been spotted, mostly at night time in or north of Washington Square Park.

Bobby has been going either south or north for roosting time which helps narrow down where he may be sleeping each night. I'll be back to Hawking soon. :)
