Morning Falcon Watch 2-4-16

By Rochester Falcon Watcher MAK

The weather was changeable this morning with wind, rain, sleet and snow and a temperature of 39 (F) 4 (C)

I started my day with Billie and Seth at the north end of Seneca Towers. She was on the northwest corner with her back to me and he was on his north window ledge.

It suddenly started to rain and sleet with the wind blowing it right at me and my camera so I started wiping it off and Seth decided to fly off at that time. Billie watched him head down in the gorge and then she too flew off.

I left for downtown where I found Beauty on the top I-beam northeast side-with the wind and rain coming from the southeast she was well protected there. I was on Bragdon St. and could see the south side ledge of the OCSR elevator shaft where our beloved falcons are very well protected-Dot.ca was there with his back to me.

I didn’t stick around for long as I had stuff to do. I checked the Medley Centre but didn’t see a falcon. I ended my watch at 8:34am. Watcher Dick reported seeing Big Frank at the Medley Centre around 11am, Larry reported seeing a falcon at the Brigthon site at 4:30pm and in the afternoon I saw Seth dive bomb a Red-tailed Hawk down in the gorge from my living room window at Seneca Towers. No contact was made like the last time and the hawk landed in a tree on the west side of the gorge. As I was coming home from walking Bella I saw Billie on the southeast corner railing. That’s all there is and there ain’t no more. As usual, our falcons put a smile on my face! :)
