WSP visit and surprise Tompkins Square Hawk sighting - July 26th, 2017

Today's weather was gorgeous so it was a pleasure to look for the Washington Square Park Hawks for two hours but it wasn't great to not see them yet again. I'm going to have to switch up my Hawking schedule for better luck.

A fellow Hawk-watcher saw the fledgling last night and another friend showed me recent video footage a friend of his took of the fledgling sitting on a low fence outside the bathrooms.

I checked on King Pigeon's puddle from a couple of days ago and saw it had drained quite a bit:


Starlings were having a drink an hour later:




A bit of greenery hanging tough while it grows on Judson Memorial Church:


It's only appropriate that the capital behind it bears a greenery motif:


I don't recall if I've mentioned this before in my blog but I see at least one of the adult Tompkins Square Park Hawks almost every time I have to be in their territorial range; either when they are on one of their tall apartment building perches or circling the sky a few blocks south of the park.

I saw both of them circling yesterday and also today before my WSP visit which was nice since I haven't seen the WSP Hawks in so long. 

But what was especially nice was spotting one of the TSP Hawks perched high up on some construction after today's Washington Square Park visit (when I still happened to have my camera on me).
