Pre-Fledge Falcon Watch - 4 on the Wall! - 6/16/19

Friday, October 18th, 2019

By Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P.

I love looking through the pictures and videos I took during this year’s fledge watch.

This report includes a picture and a couple videos from June 16, 2019.  The watchers were in the hole (aka Aqueduct St), keeping an eye on all four eyases out on the wall.

Video of all 4 on the wall!  Beauty joins them for a moment, before taking off.

As we were watching them, Donna decided it was a good time to spread her wings and flap, flap, flap like crazy!  We always get nervous when they do this, because, at this point, she was nowhere near ready to take her first flight.  One little slip and !!!!  Well take a look for yourself.  :-)

Sunday Falcon Watch (10/13/19) Plus Bonus Pics/Video from 6/15/19

Sunday, October 13th, 2019

By Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P.

It was another beautiful (but chilly) fall morning here in Rochester, NY.

11-fall-leaves-10-13-19

As usual, my first stop, after getting a breakfast sandwich to go along with my coffee, was Seneca Towers (ST).  From Maplewood Park, I could see one falcon on the NW corner with a breakfast of their own.  Too far to tell if it was Billie or Beau.

1-falcon-at-st-eating-10-13-19

On my way to Kodak Office, I passed the home of the Rochester High Falls Mounted Patrol.

2-high-falls-mounted-patrol-10-13-19

From Kodak, I could see a falcon on the NE corner of the Powers Bldg.  With a closer look, I could ID the falcon as Dot.ca.

I found Beauty on the north side of OCSR on the top Ibeam.

6-beauty-on-ocsr-10-13-19

This was my view from the Andrew St Bridge (ASB).  I could see both Beauty and Dot.ca from there.

Rochester Falcon Watcher Kathy O joined me on the watch.  Soon after she arrived, a juvie Red-tailed Hawk flew over us with a gull escort.  When the hawk got to close, Dot.ca took off and chased it to the west.

8-dc-after-juvie-rth-10-13-19

Dot.ca did not return.  Beauty was still on OCSR when I ended my Sunday morning watch.

On my way home, I passed by Seneca Towers again.  There were no falcons on the building.  But I did spot a falcon on the antenna on top of the Kodak Research Labs.

9-falcon-on-res-lab-antenna-10-13-1910-falcon-on-res-lab-antenna-10-13-19

I was unable to see if this falcon was banded, but I assume it was either Billie or Beau, since it was so close to ST.  The falcon took off, stooping down and then off to the south.

Time to really end my watch!  :-)

Now for the bonus pics and video from 6/15/19.  I’m slowly going through my summer pics/videos.

Weekend Falcon Watch - 10/5 & 10/6/19

Monday, October 7th, 2019

By Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P.

Here we are in fall already!  Where has the time gone?  The Rochester Falcon Watchers are feeling very sad after losing Donna and Phoenix.  With Jupiter doing well in rehab, only Lakota is flying free.  Thankfully, watcher Dana saw him last week.  Well, it’s been awhile, but here is my watch report from this past weekend.  I’m a bit rusty, so hopefully you’ll enjoy.  :-)

Saturday, 10/5/19

I’ve been out falcon watching at least once a week, usually Sunday, sometimes Saturday.  Since the weather was going to be sunny on Saturday, I decided to get out early.  It was chilly, but the sun made it tolerable.

My first stop was Maplewood Park, where I could see Seneca Towers (ST) across the river.  I first spotted Billie on the north end window ledge.  A few minutes later, Beau came flying by her and landed on the NW corner.  It was great seeing both of them.

1-billie-and-beau-at-st-10-5-19<— Billie and Beau on ST.

Next was downtown.  I drove by Kodak Office first to check the tower.  Also, from there, I had a good view of the downtown area.  There were no falcons in view.

One of the Kodak buildings has been taken over by Monroe Community College.

2-kodak-mcc-10-5-19

While I was checking out things from the hole (Aqueduct St), Dana tweeted that Beauty was on the old RG&E antenna.  I headed over and stopped where I had a good view of Beauty.

3-beauty-on-old-rge-antenna-10-5-19<— Beauty on antenna.

Beauty took off, heading west.  That’s when I heard the wonderful sound of a juvie calling from above!  From where I was located, I couldn’t see any falcons.  I quickly texted to Dana that I could hear a juvie and she responded that Beauty and the juvie met west of Xerox over the river.  She was able to see them from where she was.

I headed over to the Court St Bridge.  From there, I could see Beauty up on the Times Square Bldg on the NE wing ledge.  She had food and was eating.

4-beauty-on-tsb-10-5-195-beauty-on-tsb-10-5-19<— Beauty with food on the TSB.

Well, darn.  I had missed seeing the juvie, that I assumed was probably Lakota.  But I was happy to hear that wonderful cry.  It had been a long time.

Beauty finished her meal and ended up flying over to the north side of OCSR.  When I caught up with her, she was sound asleep.

Sunday, 10/6/19

It rained on and off during my Sunday morning watch.

I took the same route Sunday morning, that I did the day before.  From Kodak Office, I could see a falcon on the Frontier Communication Tower (FCT) NE box.  It was Beauty.  The FCT looks good after a recent paint job.

1-beauty-on-fct-10-6-19<— Beauty on FCT.

From the Andrew St Bridge (ASB), I could see Dot.ca on the north side of OCSR and Beauty on FCT.

2-dc-on-ocsr-10-6-19<— Dot.ca on OCSR.

I returned to keep a closer eye on Beauty.  The rain cleared and Beauty settled in for a good preen.  She then spread her wings and took off heading south.

3-beauty-off-fct-10-6-191<— Beauty on FCT.

I lost sight of her and started my search.  Dana was also out on a falcon watch.

Having no luck finding her, I parked on the Court St Bridge.  From there, I could see a falcon on the NE corner of Widows Walk.  By the time I got over there, the falcon was gone. Or so I thought.  I saw movement on the old City Hall (Irving Place) roof line.  It was Beauty and she was on the move.

4-beauty-on-old-city-hall-10-6-195-beauty-on-old-city-hall-10-6-19<— Beauty on old City Hall.

She walked out of view.  Where did she go?  After a few minutes, Beauty came back into view.  She had taken a bath.  Beauty spread her wings and started to flap, flap, flap.

6-beauty-on-old-city-hall-10-6-19<— Beauty on old City Hall after her bath.

I took a quick video to share.  Click the link below.

https://youtu.be/WHAhn9_RiE4

Beauty took off and headed back to the Frontier Communication Tower.  I ended my watch with Beauty on FCT and Dot.ca on OCSR.  All was quiet and peaceful.

I have thousands of pictures and videos to go through from my Summer watches.  I hope to share some of them some day.  lol

A couple weeks ago, Dana and I walked out on the newly opened Riverside path that starts on the Court St Bridge behind the Dinosaur BBQ.  It gives you a wonderful view of the river and the downtown area.  Here’s a picture I took of the Times Square Bldg with the Powers Bldg behind it.  You can see both nest boxes.

Friday Morning Falcon Watch! - 7/26/19

Friday, July 26th, 2019

By Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P.

(Please be sure to click on pics to see them in full size.)

It’s always a wonderful falcon watch when you see all 5 Rochester Falcons doing well!

When I first arrived, I spotted one falcon on the NE box on Frontier Comm Twr (FCT).  By the time I got there, the falcon on the box was gone and Dot.ca was on the top arm.

1-dc-on-fct-7-26-19<— Dot.ca (DC) on the FCT arm.

Larry and his dog Zeke joined me in front of City Hall.  Larry spotted a falcon fly in and land near the disk.  It was Jupiter!

2-jupiter-on-fct-7-26-19-2<— Jupiter on FCT.

After awhile, Jupiter took off.  Another juvie flew in and off towards the south.  We spotted a falcon sitting on the railing of Widows Walk (WW).  Larry had to leave, so I headed over to WW to ID the falcon there.  It was Lakota!

3-lakota-on-ww-7-26-19-2<— Lakota on WW railing.

So, I had 2 out of the 3 juvies.  Where could Phoenix be?

Another falcon flew in and landed on the railing near Lakota.  He was carrying a scrap of feathers.  After picking at the feathers, this juvie took off and flew past Lakota.  I was able to see the blue tape on the silver USFW band.  It was Phoenix!

4-phoenix-and-lakota-on-ww-7-26-19-25-phoenix-and-lakota-on-ww-7-26-19-2<— Phoenix and Lakota on WW.

First Phoenix, then soon after, Lakota took off heading north.  I drove around and couldn’t find them.  So I headed back to the west side of Widows Walk.  From my car, I could hear very loud wailing.  After a few moments, I spotted two juvies up on the Times Square Bldg.

6-2-juvies-on-tsb-7-26-19-2<— 2 juvies wailing on the Times Square Bldg (TSB).

A 3rd juvie, that I hadn’t seen, took off and then another.  Beauty came by with food and the chase was on!  I could only see bits and pieces of the chase due to the buildings surrounding me.  Both ended up flying towards the Powers Bldg.  Beauty returned without the food and landed on the WW railing.

7-beauty-on-ww-7-26-19-2<— Beauty on WW.

1 juvie remained on the TSB, wailing.  Both Beauty and the Juvie took off.  All of a sudden, there were no falcons in view.

Over on the Andrews St Bridge (ASB), I spotted two falcon on the Frontier Comm Tower.  I parked in front of City Hall, just in time to see a food exchange south of FCT.  Dot.ca brought in a pigeon, which he transferred to Phoenix.  Phoenix flew low over the street I was parked on and disappeared from view.

8-juvie-with-pigeon-7-26-19-2<— Phoenix with a pigeon.

That’s when I saw Dana.  She thought that Phoenix might have landed on the roof of the building.  We looked, but couldn’t find him.

We could still hear a juvie wailing up on FCT, and spotted both Dot.ca and Lakota up there.

9-dc-on-fct-7-26-19-210-dc-on-fct-7-26-19-2<— Dot.ca on FCT.

11-lakota-on-fct-7-26-19-2<— Lakota on FCT.

After awhile, we spotted a juvie really low on FCT.  We thought this might have been Phoenix.  He took off and so did Lakota.  They both ended up on the north end of City Place on the ledge that we call Beauty’s Bathing Spot.

13-juvie-on-city-place-7-26-19-2<— Juvie on City Place.

12-juvie-flying-over-fct-7-26-19-2<— Juvie flying by FCT.

One juvie headed back to FCT.  It was Phoenix.  Dot.ca took off.  We could no longer see the juvie on City Place.

When I ended my watch at 11 am, I had seen all 5 Rochester falcons; Beauty, Dot.ca, Jupiter, Lakota and Phoenix.  It had been a very good morning falcon watch!

Here are a few pics from my Wednesday morning watch.  That day, I was only able to find Beauty, Dot.ca and Lakota.

Sunday Morning Falcon Watch! - 7/21/19

Sunday, July 21st, 2019

By Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P.

(Be sure to click on the pics to see the full size.)

I and other watchers have been out most days, keeping an eye on our 3 young tiercels, Jupiter, Lakota and Phoenix.  Over this past week they’ve been tearing up the sky above downtown Rochester.

Today was no exception.  When I arrived downtown, I found Beauty on the north end of the Cross Rds Bldg and Phoenix on the Frontier Communication Tower (FCT).

1-beauty-on-cross-rds-7-21-19-2<— Beauty on Cross Rds Bldg.

2-phoenix-on-fct-7-21-19<— Phoenix on FCT.

I made my way over to City Hall where I found a parking spot with a great view of Phoenix.  He was in total hunt mode, watching everything that moved.  His head was in constant motion.

He took off, chasing a Robin over the City Hall Roof and back towards FCT. Mid-flight, he broke it off and ended up chasing a pigeon towards City Place.  He was right on their tails, so close to a successful hunt.  The pigeon landed and Phoenix returned to the Frontier Comm Twr.

It wasn’t long before he took off again, chasing pigeons and landing on the church just north of FCT.

3-phoenix-on-church-7-21-19<— Phoenix on church roof.

Phoenix took off again, heading west.  I could hear loud kakking, but couldn’t figure out where it was coming from.  Finally, I spotted Phoenix flying and swooping over a building (we’ll call it the owl bldg.) to the west.  He was going after the two fake owls on the roof.  Back and forth, kak kak kak!  It make me laugh, watching this young falcon defend his territory.

4-phoenix-the-owl-7-21-19

After beating those dastardly plastic owls, Phoenix returned to FCT.

7-phoenix-on-fct-7-21-19<— Phoenix on FCT.

Dana joined me and we settled in to watch Phoenix’s attempts at hunting.  If he hasn’t already had a successful hunt, he’s very close.

9-phoenix-on-fct-7-21-19-2<— Phoenix on FCT.

After awhile, Phoenix took off, heading east.  We waited for awhile, but he did not return.

8-phoenix-hunting-7-21-19<— Phoenix heading east.

Joyce joined us, and we all met on the Court St. Bridge.  Dana had spotted Beauty on top of the Jail Communication Tower.  Beauty took off and flew over us, heading towards Xerox.

We chatted for awhile, but saw no further falcon activity.  So, we split up to search the area.

I found Beauty on the north side of Xerox.

10-beauty-on-xerox-7-21-19<— Beauty on Xerox.

Dana tweeted that she had three juvies playing on City Place.  I got there just in time to see them all go in different directions.  Jupiter settled on FCT.

11-jupiter-on-fct-7-21-19-212-jupiter-on-fct-7-21-19-2<— Jupiter on FCT.

While Dana and I were watching Jupiter, we saw an adult, probably Beauty do a food transfer to Lakota and Phoenix.  They ended up over by Widows Walk (WW).

13-food-transfer-7-21-19<— Food Transfer Adult to two Juvies.

Jupiter took off and headed in that direction, and so did we.  I found Lakota on the north side of WW, lower ledge with food.  Dana found both Jupiter and Phoenix up on the west end, back of the Times Square Bldg.

14-lakota-on-ww-with-food-7-21-19-2<— Lakota with food on WW.

It didn’t take Lakota long to finish his meal.

Joyce joined us.  It started to rain and Lakota took off.  He joined his brothers on the back of the Times Square Bldg.  It was great seeing all three brothers together.

It was time to end my morning watch.  :-)

Falcon Watch Beginnings 2019

Monday, May 27th, 2019

By Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P.

I’ve been out weekly, along with many other watchers, keeping an eye on the falcons, making sure all was peaceful and quiet.

The eyases are getting bigger and bigger and Beauty and Dot.ca are hunting and bringing in lots of food for their growing young ones.  They’ve also been busy keeping their territory free of intruders, including the many Turkey Vultures that are floating through on migration.

Here are a few pics from my recent watches.

First of Year 2019 Falcon Watch Report - 3/17/19

Saturday, March 23rd, 2019

By Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P.

It’s was a long, cold Winter.  Finally, Spring has sprung (although it’s still cold - Brrrrrr!) and love is in the air for our Rochester Peregrine Falcon pair.  Beauty and Dot.ca have been seen mating and hanging out at the Times Square Bldg nest box.  Can’t wait to see their first egg.  :)

I, and other Watchers, have been keeping an eye on our Rochester Falcons, Beauty & Dot.ca and Billie and her new beau, an unbanded tiercel.  I got a really nice look at them this past weekend.

Sunday, 3/17/19

Downtown:

From the Court St Bridge, I could see that Dot.ca was inside the Times Sq Bldg (TSB) nest box.

4-dc-in-tsb-nb-3-17-19

I got out of my car to check out the river, which was living up to it’s name, the Mighty Genesee River.  The water was raging from the Spring thaw, flowing south to north, towards Lake Ontario.

1-mighty-genesee-3-17-192-mighty-genesee-3-17-193-mighty-genesee-3-17-19

I drove over to Aqueduct St (aka “the hole”) and found fellow falcon watcher Dana watching Beauty up on the Wilder Bldg.

5-b-on-wilder-3-17-196-b-on-wilder-3-17-19

Dana told me that I had just missed Beauty and Dot.ca mating up there.

After awhile, Beauty took off and flew up to the nest box.  We could hear them chupping, so I’m sure they were bowing to each other.

Dot.ca flew out of the nest box and landed on the Wilder Bldg green strip.

7-dc-on-wilder-3-17-19

Seneca Tower Area

All was quiet and peaceful, so Dana and I headed over to the west side of the river across from Seneca Towers.  We met up with fellow watcher Ron K, who had spotted both Billie and her new beau in the trees on the west side of the gorge.  I was glad he was there to point them out, because I sure would have had a hard time finding them.

He is unbanded and such a cute little guy.  So happy she found a new mate after the loss of Seth.

They both took off and flew together over the river.  It was time for us to end our watch.

Ron walks through this area quite often and has been keeping an eye on them.  He has seen them mating.  Ron sent me a few recent pictures he’s taken of Billie and her beau and has given me permission to share them in my report.  Thanks Ron!

Post Thanksgiving Falcon Watch - 11/24/18

Saturday, November 24th, 2018

By Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P.

Hello fellow falcon fans!  I hope you all had a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Although there have been no reports, be assured that we have been keeping an eye on our Rochester Falcons.

It’s been very cold here in Rochester, NY and we’ve had some snow.  I wanted to get out this morning before the rain started this afternoon.

It didn’t take me long to find both Beauty and Dot.ca.  They were sitting side-by-side on the Frontier Communication Tower’s NE box.

1-bdc-on-fct-11-24-18-22-bdc-on-fct-11-24-18-2

I moved around to the other side to get a different view.

3-bdc-on-fct-11-24-18-24-bdc-on-fct-11-24-18-25-bdc-on-fct-11-24-18-2

Both Beauty and Dot.ca took off and the hunt was on!  The Church Pigeons were off!  Dot.ca flew north and Beauty chased the pigeons.  She was unsuccessful and I watched as she flew southeast.

Dot.ca returned to the NE box on the Frontier Communication Tower.  I could hear him kakking.

8-dc-returns-to-fct-11-24-18-2 <— DC on Frontier Comm Tower (FCT)

I left Dot.ca to try to find Beauty.  After having no luck finding her, I parked on the Andrew St Bridge.  From there, I had a great view of the area.  I could see that Dot.ca was no longer on FCT.

At first I couldn’t see them.  There they were!  Both were on the corner of City Place which is just south of the Frontier Communication Tower.  Beauty had a successful hunt and she was eating.  Dot.ca was watching her and waiting patiently.

10-bdc-on-city-place-11-24-18-2 <— My View from the Andrew St Bridge of B&DC on City Place

From the Hochstein parking lot I could see Dot.ca on the corner and just a bit of Beauty as she ate her meal.

11-bdc-on-city-place-11-24-18-2 <— Dot.ca and Beauty on City Place

Every now and then I got a glimpse of Beauty.  Dot.ca preened and attempted to get rid of a pellet.

13-bdc-on-city-place-11-24-18-212-dc-on-city-place-11-24-18-2

When Beauty had her fill, she walked towards Dot.ca with the remainder of her meal.

14-bdc-on-city-place-11-24-18-2 <— Beauty gives the leftovers to Dot.ca.

Dot.ca took her offering and flew off with it towards the Frontier Communication Tower.  He landed on top of the white disk.

While Dot.ca ate, Beauty remained on the corner of City Place.

It started to lightly rain, so I ended my downtown watch.  It was great seeing Beauty and Dot.ca doing well as Winter approached.

On my way home, I stopped at Maplewood Park for a quick look at Seneca Towers (ST).  I could only see one falcon, and based on size, I believe it was Billie on the north end window ledge.

21-billie-on-st-11-24-18-2

Last weekend, 11/18/18, Kathy O and I had seen both Billie and her beau on top of ST.

1-beau-on-antenna-at-st-11-18-182-billie-on-st-11-18-18

It looks like this small tiercel is continuing to hang out with Billie.  :)

Keep warm everyone and enjoy the upcoming holiday season!

The Visitors….Time for a Break - 9/26/18

Wednesday, September 26th, 2018

By Carol P.

My heart hasn’t been into falcon watching for awhile and yesterday I found out a good friend had passed away.  Donna loved the falcons and every living creature.  Well, she wasn’t too fond of snakes and spiders. lol  When I heard she had passed away, it broke my heart.  It just goes to show that life is too darn short.

So, that being said, this will be my last report for awhile.  Time to take a break.  Beauty and Dot.ca are continuing to guard their downtown territory.  If anything changes with our pair, it will be reported.  There are other watchers that keep an eye on things too.  So hopefully they’ll report and share pictures now and then.  That would be nice.  :)

On Monday, Kathy O and I saw both Beauty and Dot.ca together on the Frontier Communication Tower.  We even got to hear some ee-chupping.  Love that sound!

So, here are some pictures of the off-season visitors and other things.  There is a young male, hatched in 2017 hanging out at a nearby mall (Marketplace).  His name is Fission and he comes from Canada.  We also have a visitor at the BS location again this year.  By size, I’d guess a female, and she’s unbanded.  I can’t be sure, but it may be the same female that we’ve had past Winters.

Rochester Falcon Watch Report - 8/20 - 9/15/18

Sunday, September 16th, 2018

By Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P.

Well, here I am catching up again.  Since my last report, there have been no sightings of any of our juvies.  Looks like they’ve left the area.  Of course, they may pop up again for a visit.  You just never know.  If they are seen again, we’ll be sure to report it.

In the meantime, both Beauty and Dot.ca are frequently seen keeping guard over their downtown territory.  They have been seen many times on the Frontier Communication Tower (FCT) and the Old Changing Scenes Restaurant (OCSR).  Our cameras have even caught Beauty and Dot.ca at the Powers nest box now and then, but not too often.

Here are some pictures from my falcon watches (8/20 to 9/15).  Enjoy!
