Monday Evening Falcon Watch – 10/27/14

By Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P.

It was a beautiful fall evening.  Before I arrived downtown at about 5:45 pm, Joyce had texted at 4:18 pm that she had juvie Peregrine Falcon at the BS location.  She took pictures, so hopefully she’ll be able to tell if this young falcon was banded or not.

I found Beauty up in the OCSR elevator shaft and from the front of the Radisson, I could also see Dot.ca on the Frontier Communication Tower’s northeast box below the platform.

Joyce joined me near the Radisson and while we were chatting, loud ee-chups filled the air.  Dot.ca flew up into the elevator shaft and out again.  He headed east over the river and “U-turned” back towards the OCSR, this time zipping up into the elevator shaft to the north ledge.  All was quiet.  We walked over to where we could see both elevator shaft ledges, but by then it was too dark to see anything.  We believe that both Beauty and Dot.ca were there.

Joyce had to leave, so I headed over to the south side of the Xerox Tower and stayed there until 6:30 pm.  No Falcons arrived, so I believe that both Beauty and Dot.ca roosted together in the OCSR elevator shaft last night.


“I checked my pics last night.  I don’t think the juvie at BS is banded.  I had some take-off shots and couldn’t see any bands.  But, I didn’t get any standing leg shots.”

    lol Pat! I think he might have landed next to her on the same ledge the first time, hence the loud ee-chupping! Hahaha! He needed to go to his own ledge. 🙂
