Eyes to the Skies

Morning watch 2-23-15

By Rochester Falcon Watcher MAK

It was 5 (F) -15 (C) with overcast skies – the sun did peak out for a few minutes but it was short-lived. I saw a sun dog as I was crossing the Driving Park Bridge


So I checked everywhere for our downtown dynamic duo. Last place to look – Kodak Office. They were both on the south side arch. I tweeted it out and when I looked back up they were gone but not for long as they flew in from the east. Dot.ca (DC) landed on the west side of the arch (he had been on the east side originally) and Beauty landed below him on the playpen floor.

Beauty stayed there for a couple minutes then flew up to join DC on the arch at which point I heard echupping.

The Beautyful one foofed up her feathers to keep warm and started closing her eyelids while DC was preening and looking around the area.

Soon after Beauty tucked her head over her shoulder into her wing for a nice nap. DC did some extensive preening then he started closing his eyes to nap.


This is how I left them after a short watch as I had some things to attend to this morning. I drove past Seneca Towers to check for Billie and 99 but they weren’t there. I ended my watch around 8:15am. Keep smiling people I just know that spring is going to break out one of these days! 🙂

    I like hearing that they are checking out the “nest”… They think spring is near.. From their ears to whoever is in charge with the arrival.. Thanks smiling MAK !!!

    They think spring is near because it is June! It’s all downhill now-just need all the snow to melt so they can get in the nest box and do some bonding and pebble arranging! 🙂
