Snow Day

The Washington Square pair was perched together when I arrived at the park today.  There was enough snow to be beautiful, but not enough to cause any major transportation issues.

Booby, the male, did some hunting and just missed catching a pigeon.  I missed capturing the moment, but you should see a great picture on Roger Paw's blog.

Rosie visited the nest and at some point both hawks appeared to go east of Broadway. 

At nightfall, Rosie went north leaving the east side of One Fifth Avenue, and going between the  Brevoort and Brevoort East apartment buildings (a complex that takes up the entire block bounded by 8th, 9th, Fifth and University.)  She's gone this way before.  What's hard to tell is if she is swinging into a protected courtyard in the center of The Brevoort to roost, or if she continues to the gardens of the Brownstones a block or two north.

Bobby roosted in what has become his favorite place these last few weeks, on the south side of the park.
