Eyes to the Skies

Morning watch 1-19-11

By Rochester falcon watcher MAK

This mornings watch was short but sweet! I arrived earlier than usual so I could walk over to under the elevator shaft of the OCSR building. Yesterdays watch with Joyce included seeing a falcon fly up in there so we wanted to confirm that someone was sleeping there at night. I’m sorry to say I didn’t see anyone up there nor did I see anyone fly out. It was dark out and it could have flown out after I left to park on the Broad St. bridge for when I got there Beauty was on the hand of Mercury. A split second later the tiercel was on the base with Beauty flying above him and then joining him. I could see that she had food so I drove down to Aqueduct St. for a better view.


I had to end my watch at this point and get home. The following pics are from yesterdays watch with Joyce at the Brighton location.  Have a great day everyone! 🙂

    This afternoon at about 3:15 I saw a falcon chasing pigeons at the Irondequoit Bay outlet bridge. There was a person feeding birds and the falcon flew above and the pigeons that were there took flight. The falcon immediately began chasing one of them out over the bay.

    Wonderful to have all these reports. Used to be, breeding season over, cameras off, guess the rest of the story. Now we have continued installments of Payton, er, Rochester Place.

    I agree with Alison in Indiana whole-heartedly! ‘365 days’ of falcon action is a very good thing!! 😀
