Sadie and Bobby sit close together, subdued baby Hawks - May 31st, 2015

A couple of fellow Hawk-watchers and I watched Bobby and Sadie sit together on Silver Center for half an hour:

Bobby left first:

He flew directly to Broadway:

He was flying down Washington Place. He rounded the corner and flew above Broadway:

The building he rounded was the one at the word "Gallatin" in the Google Maps screenshot below:

One of the babies was up and hanging out in the middle of the window ledge:

Sadie was still on Silver:

She flew off with little warning. I almost missed photographing her jump altogether:

She circled around, flew along Silver, then circled a block east of the park:

It was getting hot and muggy and the Hawks were busy elsewhere so I left for the day.

Relaxed, preeny Hawk visit - May 29th, 2015

Bobby and Sadie were quite relaxed and preeny when I visited Washington Square Park today.

Bobby was the first Hawk I saw:

Bobby circled around then perched below Sadie on NYU's Silver Center:



They both looked in the same direction:

He flew off then landed on a building a couple of doors south of her to eat:

Wiping up post-meal:

He returned to Silver, sitting north of Sadie:


One of the babes got up and looked like it was looking at Bobby:

It too was awfully preeny:





It was good I didn't stand underneath Bobby for long because I could have been hit by a slice if I weren't careful:

Bobby left his perch and soared southwest.

Sadie followed:

They both disappeared past the trees I was standing near.

I had been in the park for a couple of hours so it was a good time for me to go.
