Tonight, lots of Washington Square hawk watchers got to see Pip and Bobby around Union Square Park.
Pip, the Washington Square fledgling was eating on the theater which currently hosts performances of Fuerza Bruta, when I first saw her. After she finished her meal, she flew to a section of the roof were we couldn't see her from the park.
So, we went in search of Bobby, who was found with good eyes and the help of an alarmed American Robin. He was enjoying looking at rats and squirrels who were amazingly bold with him nearby!
After about fifteen minutes, Pip called and Bobby went over to the theater. He then flew south. Pip then came out of hiding and they both ended up on a building a few blocks north of the theater. Within minutes, they both went north out of sight, but then Pip flew and perched high on a corner of the W hotel at 17th and Park Avenue South. She continued flying and may have perched on the rear fire escape of 215 Park Avenue South.
(Generally, I wouldn't give out such exact locations, but since the birds were so high off the ground, I doubt there is any harm.)
Nice night after a drought of Pip sightings! For more video, see the Roger Paw blog.
