Plaza Male and Octavia were soaring together when I arrived at the Southeastern corner of Central Park today.
She flew north (perhaps back to her and Pale Male's nest).
Plaza Male flew over 59th Street, the street along the southern border of the park. He was heading west:
Spot the Hawk (answer at the bottom of this post!*):
He started to land at the Ritz-Carlton but decided against it and kept going west:
I ventured north to Pale Male's territory.
Downy Woodpecker working away:
Pale Male's nest:
I stood across from and under the nest for about an hour but saw no Hawk action.
I walked back south to Plaza Male's territory.
I saw him on his Sherry-Netherland perch when I was a few blocks north of Grand Army Plaza:
He was pretty relaxed so I went downtown to visit Washington Square Park to see if I could catch Bobby and Rosie during a nest switch.
I was out of luck. I didn't get to see Bobby or Rosie in action the hour I was at WSP. It was getting pretty chilly and it had already been a long day so I and a friend left the park.
