Morning watch 6-24-11

By Rochester falcon watcher MAK

Beauty was in the nestbox when I left home but when I arrived on the Broad St. bridge she was up under the northeast wing of the Times Square building.

30 minutes later she flew to the nestbox and so did Archer sneak in there without me seeing him. I can’t tell you how many times that tiercel has snuck in under my radar! lol Archer flew out and headed north for his other better half while Beauty flew out and went over to Widows Walk landing on the north side railing.


She left there and ended up on the northeast ledge of Times Square located directly above the nestbox.

The Beautyful one took off in a bit of a stoop and when she resurfaced from behind the Phillipone building which blocked my view from Aqueduct St. she was on the deck up by the nestbox.


I watched her go into the nestbox and out of my line of vision. It started to rain lightly when she came bolting out of the nestbox flying up to land under the northeast wing of the Times Square building once again.

Beauty and I hung out for an hour or so when I decided to end my watch and go home for some breakfast. See ya! 🙂

    Instead of “Widow’s Walk,” maybe it should be renamed “Scorned Woman’s Walk.” 😉
