Central Park water birds and Rosie hawk on nest duty - April 30th, 2012

Darling goslings:




One of the parents didn't like my presence (although I was a good twenty feet away) so it stood protectively between me and its brood.

Great Egret:














I went to Washington Square Park at the end of the day to visit the Red-tailed Hawks.

I was only there for an hour so I saw Rosie on nest duty but not Bobby. Bobby didn't show up at the park until twenty five minutes after I had left.
