Eyes to the Skies

Falcon Watch/Short but Sweet 8-18-17

By Rochester Falcon Watcher MAK

A warm. muggy morning with a temperature of  73 (F) 23 (C)

I only had a short time to check on our falcons this morning and they cooperated as I spotted Beauty on the Frontier Communications tower from the Andrews St. bridge. I quickly drove over to the City Hall parking lot for closer viewing. She was on her northeast cube looking beautyful as ever!

I started searching the structure for Dot.ca (DC) and after a few minutes I spotted him near the red light below the southeast cube but I didn’t have a good angle on him so I drove down Fitzhugh St. and parked in front of the Sister Cities parking garage. He was gone when I got there but after a few minutes I saw movement inside the structure behind where he had been. They sure are hard to find when they go to the interior of the tower.

That’s all she wrote- I left after sharing space for about half an hour with our downtown Rochester Peregrine Falcons. Any time spent with them is enough to make this watcher smile! :)

    DC was a tough find today Annie. I wouldn’t have found him if he hadn’t moved. :)
