Bobby and Sadie had a nest switch soon after I arrived in Washington Square Park today.
I looked for Sadie but she was clearly in some mysterious location so I waited a long while by the nest in the hopes of seeing her upon her return.
She came bulleting back after an hour:
She was toting something small but I couldn't tell what it was:
Bobby left the nest shortly after her arrival.
He flew to one of his favorite NYU Silver Center perches (diagonally northeast from the nest):
He preened for a minute.
He left Silver after 2 minutes:
He circled above the eastern side of the park before heading out of the park and going further northeast:
I spotted him on a water tower a few blocks from the park:
I often look for him there when passing by but this was the first time I'd ever actually seen him on that perch.
Having a scratch:
He took off 4 minutes after I had spotted him.
He flew over Broadway and Lafayette for a few before disappearing:
