I found Beauty on the Mercury money bag a soon as I got to the Times Square area downtown this morning. She was perched there looking quite Beautyful as she did some serious preening.

Beauty scratched and roused while she kept a look out for breakfast and Dot.ca who was hiding this morning.

At 8:29am Beauty flew off to the southwest and didn’t return. I went and looked around for DC but never found him. I got a call from Larry saying he was 99.9% sure he saw a falcon at the Brighton site (BS) as he drove by on his way to work. He didn’t have time to stop so I headed over there directly.

Little did I know that Beauty had gone over to BS for when I got there it was her on one of the northeast corners.

I fully expected to drive around and find DC there as well but he wasn’t-I’ve suspected he and Beauty go to the BS when I can’t find them anywhere downtown. Remember, DC hung out there with Pigott and when Beauty first came to Rochester she was seen at BS so it was not a big surprise to me.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t stay to see if DC showed up but I imagine he probably did at some point. So I ended my watch at around 9:30am.  It was an all Beauty watch this morning which makes me smile every time! 🙂

    It is strange to see Beauty on one of those familiar BS corners, though. Thanks Larry and MAK for the discovery and confirmation!

    I think Beauty is being very smart, she knows from experience that danger of a take over comes from a female located there. If she keeps a presence there she stops another female from getting a talon hold. Not only beautiful but smart.

    She is all that and more bc! 🙂
