Nest switch, togetherness, and evening meal delivery - April 12th, 2012

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











Bobby disappeared for several long minutes. It was clear he had been hunting and eating during his absence. He returned to the park with a full crop and part of a rat in his talons. He delivered the meal to Rosie and their two babies:







He left the nest after a minute:



He returned to the cross:


After waiting for him to make a move for half an hour, I was surprised to see Rosie appear from behind me (from the direction of the nest) as she flew to the cross to join Bobby:





Bobby left Rosie's side after a couple of minutes:



He flew to the eastern side of the park:


He turned around and returned to the nest's window ledge:






Rosie had followed him eastward as well and landed on one of the buildings lining the park:


She returned to the nest (Bobby had left the nest ledge by then and had landed on the Silver Center).

Rosie:






Bobby:







He flew to the top of Kimmel Center (at the southern side of the park):



He then went to a tree top at the western side of the park:





About ten minutes later, he flew straight to the Red Roost Inn:
