Falcon Watch (Evening) 6/9/11 7:15 to 8:15 pm - All 3 Rochester Falcons Accounted For!

From Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P.

This will be my last report for a few days since I and a few other Watchers will be heading up to Toronto to visit with the Rochester Gals, our CPF friends and Stormin.

On Saturday and Sunday morning, 4 Rochester Fledge/Falcon Watchers will join the CPF & keep an eye on Rhea Mae and Tiago’s little ones. We are really looking forward to it!

OK, back to my evening Falcon Watch. I arrived at KP around 7:15 pm and found both Unity and Archer on the stills. Since I just missed Kathy O and all was quiet, I drove downtown to see how Beauty was doing. At 7:30 pm., I found Beauty sitting in the nest box looking out on her domain. Again, all was quiet. So back to KP.

At 7:50 pm, I spotted both Unity and Archer on what we call the “pigeon box”. Archer was plucking feathers for newly caught prey under the camera at the SE corner of the box. Unity was a few feet to his left watching.

After a few minutes, she got tired of waiting and ran towards him, grabbing the food. He took off and landed on the still and she enjoyed her meal. After about 15 mins of eating, she took off and flew with the prey to the top, west end, of the blue bldg that held their scrape and cached the food. She took off, flew around and landed on the east smoke stack, lower catwalk.

That is where I left them around 8:15 pm. It was a good day. Any day I see all three Rochester Falcons and all is quite and peaceful, it’s a good day. Nite all! Enjoy your Friday and weekend!

    Have a safe trip. I hope the fledge watches are uneventful as in no one needs rescued.

  2. Alison in Indiana Says:

    Have a wonderful trip and enjoy all that flying, as juvies do much more of it than adults do.

    Thanks everyone! We had a wonderful time in Canada. No fledges, but lots of Falcon Watches and beautiful M&K kid, grandkids and step grandkids. :-)
