Well, you'll just need to come visit again sometime to see all our critters.  You would love the massive beaver we've been seeing cruising on the river below the pedestrian bridge.  How s/he gets so big on just salad is beyond me.   wave

I thought of you this weekend Dale, as I always do, when I see that most foreign creature, the groundhog, sauntering across the end of the pedestrian bridge.  Not once, not twice, but three times!  Back and forth, going about its business.  Whatever that might have been.  It seemed to be content and so were the watchers watching it.  So good to hear from you my friend.  Miss you.

5  Rochester Falcons / Falcon Watches / The Eagle and the Falcons from Sunday's Fledge Watch on: 12-Aug-14, 02:39:29 PM
The eagle and the falcons….From Sunday's (8/10) Fledge Watch by Carol P.

On Sunday, a young eagle flew over downtown.  Beauty and Dot.ca rose above the eagle and took turns stooping on it.  The eagle went into defense mode, talons up and full barrel rolls.  The falcons were relentless.  This was their territory and their young were below.  They could not allow a dangerous predator to remain in their city.

The battle seemed to go on for a very long time.  The eagle was confused and obviously had no idea what direction to take.  The Peregrines weren't giving up.

As the trio headed southeast, a third falcon joined in.  Now there were three falcons escorting the eagle out of their territory.  One of the young males, Nor’easter or Mercury had joined in and took his turn stooping on the eagle alongside his parents.

Finally, the eagle left the falcon’s territory heading south and all three Peregrine’s broke off the attack.  But, the young tiercel had other ideas.  He wasn’t ready to quit.  This was way too much fun!  The watchers on the pedestrian bridge who had witnessed this amazing encounter between Peregrine and Bald Eagle were amused when the young male started to stoop on his parents!

I could just imagine Beauty telling her young son to please practice on his father.   laugh

I can't get to WordPress to do my report because the server is down.

It took awhile, but I finally got it working again. Sorry to say that yesterday's Fledge Watch report could not be recovered.

Thanks for working on this during your vacation Shaky!  It's much appreciated!

For the record:

Susan was there on the pedestrian bridge this afternoon and had two falcons flying in the gorge.

When I arrived at 7:00 pm, there was one falcon the the Kodak Tower for a short while, then gone.

Jeanne, Dan and I ended our watch at 8:45 pm, with no falcons.  But there was an absolutely beautiful sunset and a huge yellow-orange super moon rising over the high falls.  Just gorgeous.

During the evening watch, I did drive all over the downtown area and was unable to find any falcons.

pcarey2786 (patsy6): Lots of food trucks & live electric blues at Church & Fitzhugh where FCT is. No falcons there is not surprising. They don't like blues.




Kaver was a big blues fan.


Yep!  He loved his blues.
