Rosie's happy splashy bath - April 13th, 2012

I took many photos of Rosie and Bobby hawk while in Washington Square Park today but couldn't resist posting this one photo now. 

Rosie revisited a large piece of construction material at the fenced in area of the park. That section is still undergoing renovation. It was the same piece of material she jumped into two days before. She made a splash then too. When I saw her in it the first time I thought maybe she was diving after prey. 

But now it seems she likes to hop inside it to take a bath. The floor of the piece must be solid in order to retain so much rain water. In the photo above Rosie is enjoying splashing about in the water. I was photographing her from in front of a chain link fence which is why some of her is out of focus.
