Falcon Watch Summary - 11/2/11

Posted by Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P.

Here’s what was posted today on the forum.

From Mark B @ 9:39 am from the Times Square Bldg. where Beauty & Archer’s nest box is located.

“One of the two, I didn’t see which, just attacked a crow. From above me in the Times Square Building, it dive-bombed the crow into the Thomson-Reuters courtyard before breaking off the attack and flying back to the box. The poor crow then kept running into the walls and windows of the TR buildings before flying off.”

*CPNote: Since we have not seen Archer in quite awhile and we believe that he has migrated, this was probably Beauty who remains on territory in the downtown (Rochester) area. Thanks Mark for reporting this.

At approximately 6 p.m., the following two tweets came in.

“Beauty on south side of Xerox . . Usual evening spot.” - Kathy O.

“At KP. Looks like the lovely Unity preening on top of the tall still.” - Carol P.

*CPNote - So at 6:00 p.m. two different Rochester Falcon Watchers saw both Beauty (downtown) & Unity (KP).

There were no visits by Beauty to the nest box today caught on camera.

It was a gorgeous Fall day here in Rochester, blue sky & wispy clouds with temps in the mid-60’s (F).

One more thing. The following announcement was posted on the forum by Shaky.

“We are planning on doing maintenance on the cameras at the Times Square building this weekend starting early Saturday afternoon (11/5). The cameras will be turned off during this period. They should be on again later in the afternoon.

Additional work may need to be done on Sunday (11/6). We’ll make that determination Saturday.”

This completes the summary of Falcon Happenings posted on the RFalconcam Forum on Wednesday, November 2, 2011.

    What is happening to our blogs and forum? I admit, I am guilty. I don’t live THAT far, but life gets in the way…but I do keep watch, and I thank Carol for posting this summary of what’s been happening at the nest sites in Rochester. I don’t want to see this fade away.
    MAK, if you are reading, know you are missed. Your lively reports generate a lot of interest and comments, and enthusiasm here. So hurry and get up on those two feet and give us some joyful news!
    Hope you are recovering well!

    I, too, would like to read something here from MAK, even if it is not about seeing falcons.
    There is something going on on Imprints - two very wierd “Responses” that I think are spam.

    Thanks for the heads up Alison.

    @Margaret - I wish I had more time to Watch and report. A full time job gets in the way.
