Nest switches and dive-bombs - April 8th, 2015

There was some good Hawk action during my hour and a half visit at Washington Square Park today. There were a couple of nest switches, Bobby got dive-bombed by a Kestrel, and Sadie had a relaxing 40 minute break from egg-incubating duty.

Some of the first buds of spring:
