Pip and Bobby, Washington Square Park - July 30, 2011

I spotted Pip and Bobby on the East and South side of Washington Square Park this morning after receiving a tip that the hawks were at the park by a fellow hawk-watcher. The first hawk I saw was Bobby as he flew above me as I stood on the corner of West Fourth Street and Mercer Street. He was headed in the direction of the park from the East. 


As Bobby approached the top of a neighboring building, Pip entered the scene, passing underneath Bobby and crying as she flew from Northeast to Southwest.

Pip continued to fly Southwest. Bobby turned around from his northern flight path and flew toward her direction. He stopped to land on a neighboring building as she continued onward.
