Morning watch 8-25-11

By Rochester falcon watcher MAK

Ok folks, as the sun doesn’t rise now until about 10 minutes after I have to leave downtown for home, pics are of very poor quality. Unfortunately it was too dark out to ID who was who when I first spotted both Beauty and Archer on the north side of the HSBC  building. The pic is so dark and blurry you couldn’t even tell they were birds up there but here it is anyway!  lol


I know you’re saying “seriously MAK”!?!  HA!HA! This watch WAS a bit of a joke for I drove around in circles trying to find a place to park where I could view our falcon pair unobstructed by buildings and out of the way of the many road crews on the east side. I even drove the wrong way down a one way street for the cause! (Joyce will be proud of me for this!)  So one of them flew off while I was behind the Columbus building. At the time I thought it was Archer and tweeted it out as such, but after tweaking the photo in Picassa I think Beauty left and Archer remained on HSBC based on size and a faint white spot on the right wing.

It quickly became time to call it a watch and head for home. So there you have it people… the lamest report and pics I’ve EVER posted!  I DO have fun all by myself  teehee!!! Keep smiling!  🙂

    That looks like Beauty, I think Archer took off. Don’t forget, Beauty has a white spot on her wing, just like Archer. The head looks like B also. Funny report and fun, thanks!
