Morning watch 9-20-11

By Rochester falcon watcher MAK

Oh my what a dark, dreary morning in Rochester! Add some fog and misty rain to the mix and it makes for some difficulty locating our fabulous falcons. But with the help of my good friend Donna at home manning the cameras I was able to find Beauty when she came out of the scrape to perch next to the main cam. Of course sneaky Archer eluded me once again (leaving the scrape without me seeing)but he was up in there bowing to the Beautyful one (as Donna told me)while I sat down on the Broad St. bridge clueless! lol


So just like yesterday I went Archerless but I did get to spend the rest of my watch with Beauty which is always a good thing. After 5 minutes next to the main cam she flew up to the ledge 1 level higher than the nestbox on the opposite side above where our beloved Jemison first fledged.

The above pics are taken from below the Wilder building by Aqueduct St. The next pics were taken from Exchange St. in front of the Blue Cross Arena.

After this she turned around so I went back to Aqueduct St. to finish my watch with a better view. In the next hour Beauty looked around quite a bit and seemed to be in hunting mode for there was no preening involved. At one point she was trying to bring up a pellet and I took a video at the tail end of it (link at the bottom of this report). As she spread her wings to leave the ledge I snapped off a pic and then she dropped out of sight behind the Times Square building.
