Morning watch 11-16-11

By Rochester falcon watcher MAK

First time in a long time I was awakened by my alarm clock because I wanted to be downtown on watch at sunrise. I so have missed getting out every morning to see the Beautyful one and having the truck for one day I took full advantage of it!

When I arrived in our fair city I had to drive around to all the usual spots for Beauty was nowhere in sight. Upon arriving at the intersection of Broad St. and South Ave. I spotted our girl on the money bag hand of Mercury. With a big old smile on my face I crossed over and parked on the bridge,set up my camera on my window mount and started clicking away!

What a Beautyful sight for me to see with her back on her favorite perch and mine too!

Although I spent only 15 minutes with Beauty I felt quite content. It was good¬† getting out and seeing the people walking down the sidewalk to work and greeting them with hi how ya doin’! After 2 months of being absent it was nice to be remembered.

Beauty flew off really fast after a pigeon stooping behind the Thomson Reuters building where I lost sight of her and after searching the city twice with no luck I had to end my watch. I don’t know when I’ll get out again to see our resident downtown Peregrine but until I do I want you all to keep smiling!¬† :)
