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:
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.
