Rosie and Bobby were in fine form this morning in Washington Square Park. I spent just over three hours with them.
Rosie was easy to spot right away:
She had made a go at something but was unsuccessful. She then flew to a nearby lamp post:
She caught a squirrel at her next attempt:
Bobby was in a tree near where I was standing.
He had to contend with his own squirrel that was harassing him.
I ran over to where Rosie had taken her squirrel:
She walked a few steps with it:
A squirrel bugged Rosie at her new perch before finally leaving her alone:
She didn't seem all that hungry so she left her catch on the branch for another time.
She descended to a park bench below, apparently after missing catching a pigeon:
Bobby in a tree near the original one I saw him in at the start of the day:
He flew to a new tree:
He sat relaxed for so long, I took my chance to leave the park for the day.
