Sadie was perched atop Cardozo Law School as usual early this morning:
My friend and I left Sadie after 15 minutes and returned to Washington Square Park to look for Bobby again.
Bobby was nowhere to be seen at first. I stopped in my tracks upon seeing a juvenile Hawk sitting rather low in a western tree:
Squirrels were hassling it:
All of a sudden we heard Bobby screaming out loud from a tree to our left. We couldn't see him in the foliage. He 'yelled' several times. The juvenile moved to a tree further north from him.
Bobby flew from his cover and chased the juvenile:
The juvenile flew around the trees, Bobby chasing it from area to area.
Dealing with another squirrel:
I didn't get this shot in focus but am including it since the body postures are pretty fun:
Bobby giving chase again:
This guy never noticed the Hawks:
Bobby chased the juvenile away from the grounds after 30 minutes.
I almost tripped over a dead squirrel on the lawn:
It was in rigor mortis. I didn't see any Hawk talon puncture wounds on it so I'm not sure how it died.
Bobby hunted for a bit:
He watched some birds a regular park-goer was feeding:
Bobby flew by them rather low but didn't make a go for them. He traveled on to trees in the distance. We lost sight of him and couldn't find him so we left the park after a few more minutes.
