Short-Eared Owls at Shawangunk Grasslands NWR
Very Windy Afternoon

Copulation In Washington Square

This evening was kind of quiet with Bobby perched on a building on the west side of the park, and then the cross.  The only action had been a Peregrine Falcon which made a brief visit.

But then came Rosie to join Bobby.  Bobby went across the park and back and landed on top of Rosie.  The copulation lasted the few seconds it always does.

Then both went off to roost for evening.
