About Seth – Information from the DEC

As we previously reported, we received word that Seth had passed away, but we had no details from the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC). Today June Summers, President of the Genesee Valley Audubon, received the following information from Jenny Landry at the DEC.

“Seth broke his wing several days before he was found. It was a compound fracture. He passed away several nights after surgery, reason not yet determined.”

Thank you Jenny.

On a happier note, Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P reported seeing two falcons at Seneca Towers this morning. We hope this means that Billie has found a new mate.

    I’m happy to read Billie has been seen with a potential new mate. Hopefully if things progress with them – and he’s not just a migrator – that means she will stay around too !

    Poor Seth, injured for so long with no one knowing. Sure hope Billie and this new male get together so we can continue having 2 Rochester pairs.

    Alas, but such is falcon life. May Billie find happiness (that is a good mate and many eyases).
