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:


Sadie:


Bobby:


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:



Hello:


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



It too was awfully preeny:



Sadie:




Bobby:


Sadie:






Bobby:


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.
