Tuesday Late Afternoon/Evening Watch - An All Beauty Watch - 10/29/13

By Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P.

A very short and sweet falcon watch report tonight.

I first checked downtown - Nothing.

Then I checked the BS location - Nothing.

Back downtown.  Finally a falcon!  Woohoo!  :-)

Beauty was on the outstretched hand of Mercury.  Here are a few pics.

While I was downtown, Dana reported seeing an adult Peregrine Falcon eating on the glass pyramid on the roof of the old Medley Center in Irondequoit.  Both Lisa McK and Kathy O were at the BS location and neither had seen Pigott there.

I searched all over downtown for a 2nd time and could not find Dot.ca.  At 5:00 pm, it was time to move on.  My next stop was the Charlotte/Summerville area.  Again, no falcons found.  Russell Station was my last stop. By 6:00 pm, clouds were moving in and I was quickly losing light.  No sightings of any falcons there either.  The only raptor I found was an adult Red-tailed Hawk hunting on the south side.  It was time for me to call it a watch.

This weekend we start Daylight Savings Time.  So next week, it will get darker even faster.  Darn.  :-(

On my way home, I passed Buck Pond in Greece, NY.  The sun was setting, making for a beautiful view.  Goodnight everyone!
