Morning watch 6-27-11

By Rochester falcon watcher MAK

Hi all! Today my watch started a bit later than usual due to Sue starting her new job at 7:00am. For the next 2 weeks I will go out before she goes to work to check on the Beautyful one. If I don’t find her I will go back out after I take Sue to work. Now then, today I found Beauty on the Widows Walk.

I parked down on Aqueduct St. as we hung out for about an hour before she took off flying northeast. She did lots of preening in this time. I was not able to locate her again but I did stop by the Broad St. bridge and take some pics of the river and it’s water birds.

As I made my rounds looking for Beauty I stopped by Kodak Office and spotted this Kestrel up on the netting that was placed around the playpen area where the M&K nestbox was located. Now that I have gotten a close look I’m hoping it’s talons weren’t caught in the netting. I will go back and check to see if it’s still there in a bit. Until next time I hope everyone stays safe and happy! 🙂

    MAK, that kestrel wasn’t caught in the netting was it ? Looks scary.
    Nice pictures. I love the GBH!

    Thanks Margaret. I went back to check on the Kestrel and it was gone so I guess it’s alright. 🙂
