Eyes to the Skies

Morning watch 8-24-11

By Rochester falcon watcher MAK

For the second day in a row I found Beauty on the HSBC building. Today she was on the northwest corner.


It was with just about 5 minutes left of my watch that I found the Beautyful one. I barely had time to take one pic and as I was tweeting out her location she departed! I thought she might have gone over to the Times Square building to visit her scrape. So as I drove over to the Broad St. bridge I pulled  to the side to take a quick look around. No sightings so I continued on to make my way home. Now you might ask… MAK why do you get up so early and drive downtown in the dark  just for about a half hour of searching to see a falcon for a few minutes!?! Well, ask anybody that has ever seen one of these captivating creatures live and in person and they’ll probably tell you the same thing I’m about to…they get into your heart and soul and compel you to keep going back for more!  I encourage anyone who has the opportunity to observe them for however long to do so. It might just change your life as it has mine!!!  🙂

    Amen, sister! We joke that we’re not addicted, but we are…and I do NOT want to find a cure!

    Absolutely not Ei! Not sure who wrote the song but it’s kinda like…”if loving you is wrong I don’t wanna be right”! 🙂
