Kestrel hop - August 25th, 2013

A few regular Red-tailed Hawk seekers and I spent at least two hours looking for Bobby, Rosie, or whoever (banded fledgling or any 'one' else) in Washington Square Park but we didn't find them.

We're well into the summer post offspring-rearing doldrums when the Hawks hang out away from the park for longer periods of time.

The leaves have been dropping lately, making it easier to spot the Hawks when they are in the trees so that's a positive.

I took some photos of Sparrows and a couple of Kestrels that were hopping about on some of Bobby and Rosie's favorite perches. 

The Kestrels were pretty nice to briefly follow during Bobby and Rosie's absence.
