Bitter Cold and Snowy Late Afternoon Watch (4-5 pm) 1/23/13

By Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P.

After a long day at work, I headed downtown, arriving a little before 4:00 pm.  It was really hard to see much with the heavy snow falling, but I tried my best to find Beauty and couldn’t.  Next stop, the BS location.

I found Pigott and BST on the north side of the east extension at their nighttime roost.  BST was one window above Pigott.

I thought for sure they would settle in for the evening, but BST had other thoughts.  He chupped a bit, flew up to the top window, spread his wings and took off.  BST flew around the back of the building.  After waiting a few moments to see if he would return, I drove around, finally finding him on the north side of the west extension 3rd window down.  Now they were bookends, since she was on the 3rd window down on the north side of the east extension.  Too funny.  It was time for me to go.

I passed through the downtown area one more time and after not finding Beauty out and about, I went over to the OCSR elevator shaft.  The snow had lightened just a bit, and I’m pretty sure that Beauty was up inside the OCSR elevator shaft on the south ledge.  Here’s what I saw.

This was my view looking north.  You can barely make out the Kodak Tower.
