A Weekend of Watching the Rochester Falcons – 4/11 & 4/12/15

By Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P.

Sorry that I don’t have time to do a more thorough falcon watch report.  But, I thought you would enjoy seeing some pictures I took today and yesterday, while out on watch.  Dana joined me both days.  All was peaceful and quiet both Saturday and Sunday.  No third falcon seen.  So, here is what I saw while out watching falcons this weekend.  Enjoy!

Saturday, April 11, 2015 – Still windy and chilly!

Sunday, April 12, 2015 – What an absolutely gorgeous Spring Day with temps in the 60’s (F)

Dana and I started our watch at Seneca Towers this morning around 9:30 am.  We saw both Billie and Seth soaring above the river.  Lots of activity by these two.

After spending a couple hours watching Billie and Seth, we made our way downtown to watch Beauty and Dot.ca.  They were also very active, obviously enjoying the warmer weather like their watchers.  lol

We started our downtown watch after finding Beauty on the top of the Mercury statue.  Here is what Dana and I saw.

After Dot.ca ate his share on the north side of the Times Square Bldg (TSB), he took the remainder of his meal, which was quite large, to Beauty at the nest box.  She accepted his food gift and took it to the base of the Mercury statue to eat.  Dot.ca reluctantly (yeah right! lol) went back into the nest box to cover the eggs.  A job he thoroughly seems to enjoy!

It was a wonderful weekend to be out watching falcons.  All 4 Rochester Falcons were seen each day.  All was quiet and peaceful.  Just how I like it!

    Hi Pat and thanks! I love my new phone. Lots to get used to. Had my last phone, a flip top, since 2008. An oldie but a goodie! Someone here at work told me that the Smithsonian was looking to put my phone in their museum. hahaha! 😉

    Who is Seth? What happened to 99?

  7. Carol P. Says:

    Morning Alison! There was a poll on the forum to choose whether 99 keeps his name or is renamed Seth (the 2nd choice when we named Veteran). There is an Imprints about it. 99 is now called Seth! 🙂

  8. Alison Says:

    Ah, so. Thanks, Carol P. Imprints gets updated so infrequently that I do not go there first as I did in the beginning of this format.
