Eyes to the Skies

Morning watch 8-1-11

By Rochester falcon watcher MAK

We start a new month today as the summer continues to fly by with some pretty crazy looking skies in Rochester this morning.

Beauty and Archer were up in the nestbox just a couple of minutes before I arrived this morning for my watch.  As the days get shorter and I go downtown later my watches too are getting shorter. After driving around our fair city for about 30 minutes Beauty finally showed herself. She was on the east side railing of the platform on the Frontier Communications Tower when I spotted her from the Broad St. bridge.  I drove over to City Hall to get up close and personal.

I spent 15-20 minutes with the Beautyful one before I had to end my watch and get the truck home. I’ll end this report with some more pics of the morning. Have a great day and remember to keep your eyes to the sky, you never know what you’ll see!  :)
