Beauty Found Injured – Downtown Rochester (2/10/12)

We are sorry to report that Beauty, the resident female nesting on the Times Square Bldg in Downtown Rochester, was found on the ground near the Xerox Tower. She was taken to a local rehabber, where she is being checked over and will receive the care she needs.

The DEC has been notified as well as June Summers of the Genesee Valley Audubon. Since Beauty is an endangered species in New York State, she is under the protection of the DEC.

At this time, we do not know the extent of her injuries.

As soon as we hear anything, we will post it here.

We here at Rochester Falconcam hope that Beauty heals quickly and soon graces the sky above Rochester once again.

    Cound the “Noisemaking” at Washington Square Park have disoriented her? Pathetic that entire story there.

    @Guru-We don’t have much information, but what we do have indicates it was most likely a territorial battle, not the crow scaring operation.

  15. Guru says:

    Nature, I think we can handle that.

    Oh, dear. Could it be that strange peregrine pair reported recently, or even Unity?
