Bobby sunning then defending his turf - January 30th, 2015

Bobby was resty for the majority of my Washington Square Park visit today.

I first saw him atop One Fifth Avenue:



He often suns for a long stretch before sunset:


He flew down to the western part of the park after 40 minutes:




We lost him for 5 minutes until he showed up circling above the park then landing on a building along the southwestern corner of the park:



He spotted something in the distance and moved toward it 2 minutes later:



He screamed several times as he flew toward whatever was distressing him:


He circled above whatever he didn't like for a bit and then landed on One Fifth Avenue again:


We didn't see what he was yelling at but the only times we've heard him carry on like that was when he was confronting another raptor.

We only watched Bobby for another half hour because it was clear that he had resumed his rest mode and it was getting too cold outside for us to carry on comfortably.

However he was seen at the Red Roost Inn later.
