Bobby was toting a pigeon and circling with Sadie:
They flew around the corner of Bobst Library:
I looked for them for 10 minutes on the side streets with no luck. I returned to the park to find Sadie eating the pigeon atop One Fifth Avenue:
Bits were carried on the breeze as she plucked away:
I went to the trees to look for Bobby. A fellow Hawk-watcher has seen him twigging and bringing nest material to the nest so I was hoping to see him doing so.
The nest is looking well:
The pigeon flocks started freaking out so I whipped around to see Bobby land on a flag pole overlooking the eastern side of the park:
He soon left his perch and circled above the park.
Sadie watched him:
Bobby sat by while Sadie ate:
He sat with her for almost 10 minutes before circling over the park again.
He then did an amazing vertical drop to a mystery perch:
I found him later circling east of the park before he disappeared for good.
I left with Sadie still eating (her meal had lasted an hour already):
