It’s two days until fall and the trees are starting to change colors!

By Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P.

The Rochester Watchers have been out, keeping an eye on Beauty and Dot.ca. Both have been seen hanging out near the Times Square Bldg and downtown Rochester. They are doing well.

Here are some pictures I took over the past two weeks.

Beauty & Dot.ca on Mercury

By Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P.

So much has happened here in Rochester, NY over the past couple weeks. I just wanted to assure everyone that the Rochester Falcons are doing well and don’t seem to be bothered by these activities. Thankfully.

I and other watchers have been out checking on Beauty, Dot.ca and all the other downtown critters.

On Sunday, I thought I saw a falcon fly over the Wilder Bldg and possibly land on the north side, while Beauty was on the base of Mercury. The falcon quickly took off, flew in front of OCSR and headed over to the north side. Beauty was up on the base of Mercury and both falcons vocalized a bit. I assume, incorrectly, that it was Dot.ca.

After checking my pics, I saw that the visitor was a juvie Peregrine Falcon and that I could make out eyebrows! Because Beauty showed no aggression and vocalized softly, I believe that it was Hope and she was looking great. Other watchers (Dana, Lou, Joyce, Kathy O & Jennifer) arrived and we searched for the juvie falcon, but could not find her. Darn.

I do love when one of our young falcons makes an appearance after not being seen for along time.

Here are some pictures from my last few falcon watches, starting with a few pictures of the juvie I believe was Hope. 🙂

Hope (I believe) coming in to say hello!
