No falcons at Seneca Towers when I left this morning but when I got home 99 was on the south end top window ledge with a full crop. I had to go take care of some business and when I got home at about 2pm both Billie and 99 were on the same windows at each end facing each other. I had no camera with me at that time but I got a couple pics of 99 from earlier.

On to the downtown part of my watch-I didn’t find Beauty and Dot.ca (DC) until 8:30am as I was heading east on the Court St. Bridge. They were both on the west side of Bausch & Lomb-DC on the northwest corner and Beauty farther down heading toward Archer’s corner.

They just stayed perched that way for a while, both looking around their surroundings and at each other.

DC walked back away from the corner out of sight for a couple seconds then returned to the corner and at 8:34am Beauty flew over to the corner behind DC. I think all this might have had something to do with food but can’t say for sure. Today’s snippet movie includes both of these activities.

The Beautyful one also walked back a few steps then came back to the corner and tried to “Shake it off” lol as DC watched her every move from over his shoulder.

My camera battery had been flashing that the charge was low and I was trying to hold out until after they took off but I chose to change it out with a new one before it died all together. Of course while I was doing so Beauty and DC checked out on me so I had no idea what direction they flew off to. I took a ride around downtown and after no luck stopped to get some coffee at the Main and State St. Tim Horton’s. As I was walking to my car, I spotted DC on the northeast corner of Widows Walk with his back to me. I drove over to Broad St. and parked in front of the Ebenezer Watts building where fellow falcon watcher and good friend DebbieH works. From there I could see Beauty was on the southwest corner across from DC.

Once again they snuck off while I wasn’t looking as I tweeted out their whereabouts. Some days are like that! After another trip around downtown I found DC up in the OCSR elevator shaft on the south side ledge.

This is where I ended my watch at 9:30am. It seems that the theme these days is together-Beauty and DC plus Billie and 99 are all staying close to each other getting ready for the coming season of courtship and bonding. This makes me smile! :)
