Eyes to the Skies

Monday Afternoon Falcon Watch – 4/20/15

By Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P.

(2:45 – 4:00 pm)

With a thunderstorm pushing it’s way towards Rochester yesterday, high winds and dark skies to the west, I knew I didn’t have long to check on the Rochester Falcons.  When I left work, Beauty was on the eggs.  Soon after I arrived downtown, they had switched, but I didn’t realize it until I received a text from cam watcher NCA that Dot.ca was on the eggs.  Thank you!

At first I couldn’t find Beauty, but finally, from the Andrews St Bridge, I spotted her on the OCSR 2nd Ibeam down from the top, at the west corner.  I made my way back to ‘falcon central’ (on Broad St, near the Times Square Bldg (TSB).  From there I had a nice view of Beauty.  During my watch, Beauty preened and stretched the whole time, but never moved from that spot.

I kept an eye on the sinister looking clouds approaching from the west and decided to leave at 4:00 pm.

It was a short watch, but both Rochester Falcons were accounted for!
