By Rochester Falcon Watcher MAK

It was a chilly 26 (F)-3 (C) with dark conditions and light snow throughout my watch

It wasn’t until 7:45am that I found a falcon. It was Dot.Ca (DC) up on the north ledge of the OCSR elevator shaft. I found him as I was parked at the Radisson Hotel by Main St. After a couple minutes DC turned around and eventually turned his back to the cold world outside of his man cave. The sun shone thru for a few minutes while I was there.

I left DC to look for Beauty-I found her about 8am on the Kodak Office playpen southeast corner. She wasn’t easy to see with the snow that was falling in varying degrees, but I was able to get a few pics that are somewhat clear. Beauty had her back to me at first, then she turned to the left to give a side view at least.

I shared space with the Beautyful one for about 20 minutes when she flew south out of view.


While making the rounds to look for Beauty I checked on DC-he was still in the elevator shaft with his back facing out. I wasn’t able to locate Beauty again. I had to be somewhere so I ended my watch at 8:40am. I wasn’t done though for when I got home to Seneca Towers I found a falcon on the east side as I was in the Northridge Church parking lot. I believe it was 99 on the top window ledge of the 2nd apartment down from the southeast corner.

99 gave me just enough time to take a few pics, then while I was taping him, he flew off heading north and didn’t return. So I saw 3 out of 4 Rochester Peregrine Falcons today which is worthy of a big old smile on this falcon watchers face! 🙂
