Evening Falcon Watch - An Evening with Beauty on the Frontier Communication Tower - 8/21/13

By Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P.

Until I see a young falcon, I have officially changed my watch report category from Fledge Watch to Falcon Watch.

It was an absolutely gorgeous evening.  I arrived downtown just before 6:00 pm and found one adult falcon on the Frontier Communication Tower.  Dana joined me at the benches in front of City Hall and although we did not see her bands we are reporting that it was Beauty.  She was under the platform above the SE box.  She remained there for my 2 1/2 hour watch (6:00 to 830 pm).

Kathy O joined us, after spotting an adult Peregrine on the Times Square Bldg.  Probably Dot.ca, but no bands were spotted.  Just once Beauty ee-chupped a few times and then fell silent.  That was the only vocalization I heard while there.

Beauty was content to preen and stretch and we were content to just sit and watch.  lol  Would have been nice to hear a juvie, but it didn’t happen.  Joyce drove by on her way home after grocery shopping for a short visit, for a falcon fix.  At 8:00 p.m., Dana and Kathy O left and I decided to drive around downtown to take a look.  No luck finding any falcons.  Next stop, the BS location to see if Pigott was home.  Nope, no falcons seen there either.

By 8:00 pm, I was losing light, but still checked out downtown one last time.  The Crows were coming into the city, but again no falcons.  I went back to the Frontier Communication Tower and it was too dark to see if Beauty was still there.  One last check.  At 8:30 pm, I circled (on the ground, in my car! lol) the Kodak Tower.  No falcons there either.

Well, at least we saw Beauty and Kathy saw a falcon on the Times Square Bldg that was probably Dot.ca.  At 8:35 pm, I left my last tweet and headed home.

I’ll leave you with a few pics, including one of the full moon from last night that they are calling a blue moon.  It may not be blue, but it sure is pretty.  lol  Goodnight everyone!
