Bobby and Rosie's squirrel, rat, and pigeon - October 5th, 2012

Bobby showed up at the Judson Memorial Church cross right on schedule outside Washington Square Park today:




He flew off his perch after twenty minutes.










He had flown to a stashed squirrel catch. It was probably the same squirrel he caught yesterday.







A friend told me Rosie was spotted on a northwest park lawn so I went to have a look:







She was eating a rat. Tail going down:





Feaking, or wiping her beak clean:


A squirrel approached her:



She flew off her branch and to another lawn:


She caught a pigeon:












Admirers below her:


Look closely, there's a small pooch in the middle person's bag. Too cute!

Rosie brought her pigeon to a new tree:





Flying past the Holley Monument's head:




Rosie in one of her new trees:






She made her way across the street (Washington Square South) and landed on the NYU Law Building rain gutter, one of her favorite perches:



She entered the gutter and took a drink:



Bobby was still working on his squirrel, half an hour after the last time I was with him:



Rosie was still at the gutter:


Happy shake:


Picking his nails clean:






Bobby disappeared into the trees.

I stayed near Rosie for another ten minutes.


I got word that Bobby was behind the Holley Monument so I left Rosie to see him:


He eventually flew out of sight for the evening. When I returned to Rosie's perch, she too was gone for the evening.
