I saw one of the Tompkins Square Park Hawks on their Village View perch (along 1st Avenue between 3rd & 4th Streets):
Plastic shopping bags get caught in the heat updraft and often swirl around in the 'breeze'.
I searched for Bobby and Sadie throughout Washington Square Park and northeast of the park.
They showed up at the park 25 minutes after I began my search.
Flying over NYU's Silver Center (at the northeastern corner of the park):
I noticed that Grace Church's spire is visible from the park (I had mentioned the church in my last post):
One of the Hawks landed on an antenna at a building northeast of the park:
The last time I saw a Hawk there was January 22nd.
Sadie flew over Bobst Library and to her 3rd Street Washington Square Village perch:
Bobby appeared to watch over her:
Cool breezes fluffed up his feathers:
He circled east of the park before disappearing:
I went back to Sadie-watching:
...aaand I missed getting a shot of her leaping off her perch again:
She circled above the park square before she too disappeared:
Work continues on Sadie's favorite southwestern building:
