Brooding on Fifth Avenue
Before the Rain

Rosie Enjoys The Fences

It was a gray day to be in the park.  Very light rain on and off.

My afternoon started of nicely with the spotting of a Brown Creeper.  A nice little bird that I usually see in the winter in Central Park.  It was nice to add it to my Washington Square bird list.

Rosie was active mid-afternoon.  She was hunting pigeons and squirrels but it was hard to tell if she was just getting exercise or was really hungry.  She did lots of low hunting runs on the newly fenced off lawns which have just been reseeded.  It wasn't the patient hunting that is successful for Red-tailed Hawks, but youthful "go after anything that moves" type of hunting you see with juvenile birds.

After an exchange it was Bobby's turn to be active.  He caught a pigeon a top an NYU building south of the church cross.
