I visited Washington Square Park yesterday but did not see either fledgling before the rain forced me to leave early in my visit.
A fellow Hawk-watcher saw one of the fledglings this morning but I was not so lucky. However I did see Rosie and Bobby in fine form today.
I first found Bobby by his shadow. I was glancing at some construction going on outside of what's called Merchant's House Museum on 4th Street between Bowery and Lafayette Street. All of a sudden I saw a huge bird's shadow pass over the side of the museum. I looked up to see Bobby circling above. He was circling above the same corner I saw him above on April 18th:
He zoomed northwestward over the buildings, right toward the park.
I found him sitting with Rosie on One Fifth Avenue when I finally reached the park a few minutes later. It only took Bobby a few mere seconds to make the same trip.
Rosie on the left:
A pair of Mockingbirds dive-bombed them.
Rosie flew off and circled around:
She rejoined Bobby. He then flew off:
He headed southeast. She followed him a couple of seconds later:
He flew away then reappeared on the rear of NYU's Silver Center:
He had a rat:
Rosie flew after him:
She joined him at what's called the NYU Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences Building:
A fellow Hawk-watcher has spotted Rosie and Bobby on that building a few times lately.
Rosie moved to my right:
The rat's tail seen just in front of her:
Like before, Rosie followed him immediately:
Bobby on the Education Building:
I searched and searched for Rosie and was super lucky to have noticed movement on the building in front of me just as I was turning. It was Rosie, eating the rat:
A Mockingbird found her too and dive-bombed her for a couple of minutes.
She left the rat and flew to a park tree across the street:
Bobby appeared several minutes later, circled around One Fifth, then flew in one swoop to the rat:
One Fifth behind him:
He took the rat to the trees:
I found Bobby sitting in a window at NYU's Shimkin building:
I'm not sure who it was but one of the adults was sunning on One Fifth:
