Eyes to the Skies

Morning watch 12-26-12

By Rochester Falcon Watcher MAK

It was a slow start as I looked for and waited in vain about an hour for Beauty. No show so I drove to Brighton(BS)  and waited some more. Falcon watching takes a lot of patience sometimes but eventually a falcon appeared and landed on a southeast window ledge after first landing on a southwest corner.

At the time I thought it was BST but after reviewing my pics on the computer I can say for sure that it was Pigott. She did some preening and head bobbing for half hour then she flew south only to return momentarily and land on a southwest corner.

The deer that has been seen hanging around by the building for the last 3 or 4 days was not around anywhere. 10 minutes later Miss Pigott flew toward the front of the building  out of view.

When she didn’t return I drove around and found her on a west side window ledge near where what’s known as “the nook ” is located. I left her and a little over an hour later upon returning to downtown I found Beauty on the southwest corner of the Hyatt Hotel.

The Beautyful one kept her back to me as she side stepped to her left  just off the corner. I had to run some errands before the big storm hit so I ended my watch at this point.  Hopefully I will be able to get out in the morning to check on our beloved falcons, until then keep smiling! :)

I have provided 2 links for videos from todays watch

    They are so beloved MAK and I hope they stay safe in all that snow that’s coming.
    I really appreciate all you do to report on our little friends :-)

    WOW, stay safe if you venture out on THursday morning. It is nasty now and it is going to snow all night long! I got stuck in my own driveway tonight! In 12 years of living here, I never got stuck in my own driveway! Be careful, and maybe …can I say this? Stay home on Thursday morning? I know that is like telling Beauty to stay off of Mercury….:-) Be safe.
