Rosie in the snow

By UrbanAnthropod, January 22, 2012 6:00 pm

First Snow

Since I visited Central Park and the Ramble yesterday after the snowfall, I decided to head down to Washington Square Park today. Upon arrival, I spied Rosie on a building to the east. She took off shortly after towards the east so I walked over towards the fountain to survey the scene better in case she returned.Looking south, there were no signs of Bobby or the peregrine that had been harassing the pair. When Rosie returned, she landed on the same building. A few of us watched and were distracted by the cries of a nearby sapsucker. When we turned to look at the vocal woodpecker, Rosie had taken off. Fortunately, it was around feeding time. Bobby arrived but staid on the buildings as Rosie swept through to scatter the pigeons. She perched on the northwest side of the park, which didn’t sit too well with a pair of blue jays.



Rosie came down towards the southwest side that was fenced off near the dog run.

Preparing to pounce


Rosie pounced from the fence post and rapidly dispatched a small rat as Bobby looked on from the Judson Memorial Church cross.

There’s David Attenborough. There’s George Page. And then there’s Larry the Panhandler who so graciously narrates my videos. I could only top it off if I had Randall providing the narration with his keen insight to animal behavior.
