I only had a few seconds to photograph Rosie in the nest before I rushed to catch Bobby before he flew away so apologies for the poor quality of her photo:
Bobby was a few blocks east from Washington Square Park, on a regular antenna perch high above:
He dropped down to a lower level:
I searched for him up and down a very busy Broadway block full of people on this unusually warm day (we reached temperatures in the lower 70s in the city).
I saw him making his way back to the park:
He was on a favorite flag pole at the southeast corner of the park:
If only you could have been there to see him tuck his wings inward and float overhead looking like a bat:
He landed on the corner of Bobst Library:
Flying in front of the building, flying east again:
He flew in a half circle over the edge of the park, landing on a terrace of the apartment building at the north (Two Fifth Avenue):
Arch in the foreground:
He didn't look rested on the terrace so I was not surprised when he was off again:
He disappeared over a low building at the eastern end of the park, not to be seen again this evening.
Good night, Rosie and baby:
