Sadie and Bobby cavort together - June 20th, 2017

Mama Sadie Hawk was on the northwestern corner building when I arrived at Washington Square Park today:


She took off 12 minutes later and circled near another object the block north of the park:



It was a bear balloon:


I guess she realized there was no danger to her territory because she tucked into a dive back toward the park:


On the southwestern corner building a few minutes later:


She flew off a couple of minutes later and circled around her building and the park square:



Coming in for a landing on her southwestern building:



Off again 10 minutes later:


She flew to 6th Avenue (the block west of the park and closer to where the fledgling was last seen) so I followed her there. I walked along 6th and looked for the fledgling but didn't find her. 

I did see Sadie and Bobby circle closely together and one of the adults toting food at one point so I had hopes the fledgling was nearby (and simply out of view at the moment).

Sadie:


Bobby:



They followed each other back and forth above the buildings just west of the park.

Bobby on One Fifth Avenue 40 minutes later:


He dove off after 3 minutes and headed low over the southern park buildings:


His disappearance was a good time for me to pack up and take my leave.
