An hour with mama Hawk - August 15th, 2016

A fellow Hawk-watcher and I watched mama Sadie relax during a sun bath for an hour this morning. Sadie was seated near her favorite satellite dish on 3rd Street. 

She jumped off her perch after an hour and headed due west toward 6th Avenue. We looked for her for a few minutes but soon called off the search due to the heat and humidity and the knowledge that she could be anywhere.


Seen beyond the park fountain and the Judson Memorial Church tower:





My friend has seen both Bobby and Sadie over the last few days but not the fledgling (not definitively anyway since sometimes the lighting or angles make identification difficult).
