Morning watch 4-6-15

By Rochester Falcon Watcher MAK

A dark and partially foggy start with a temperature of 34(F) 1(C) turned into a sunny day here in the flower/flour city

I had a frustrating watch this morning as my phone was very slow sending and receiving tweets and there were distractions keeping me from keeping track of Beauty and Dot.ca (DC). Thank you to those who helped me!

When I landed on the Broad St. Bridge I saw Beauty on the base of Mercury eating-I went down to the hole to watch.


She didn’t eat for long before taking a small piece to the green part of the base where I believe she cached it or ate it. Can’t be sure because she was blocked from my view where she went. She peeked at me and then she was gone.

This is where I lost track of the Beautyful one as I didn’t see what direction she flew. Next thing I knew there was a falcon on the west corner top I-beam of OCSR and then it flew to the Mercury money bag (MMB). I thought it was Beauty but it turned out to be DC. I kept thinking boy, she looks small up there today.

Suddenly, DC flew off toward OCSR and at that time I saw the exterior OCSR elevator reach the top of the shaft. DC flew at it and I thought he was going to go in on one of the ledges. Then the elevator started making its way down and DC dive-bombed it 4 times until I could no longer see it and he returned to the MMB. Next, I saw who I thought was DC on the west corner top I-beam of OCSR. Turns out it was Beauty as I was again distracted by my phone. Ugh!

I had to be somewhere at 9am so I ended my watch at that point. It made me smile to have seen both Beauty and DC even if I didn’t always know who I was looking at! 🙂
