Sunday Afternoon Falcon Watch and Catch-Up! – 5/31/15

By Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P.

Sunday Afternoon – May 31, 2015

From high 80’s yesterday to 47 degrees and rain today.  Crazy weather changes!

1:30 to a little after 3:00 pm

When I first arrived on the Broad St Bridge, both Beauty and Dot.ca were on the top IBeam of the OCSR.  Beauty was on the south corner with her head ducked under her wing sleeping.  Dot.ca was on the west corner keeping guard.  Joyce tweeted that the three eyases were in the nest box, tucked into the corner.

At 2:30 pm, both Beauty and Dot.ca took off.  I found them 15 minutes later on the Wilder Bldg green strip, just a few feet apart from each other.

They were still on the Wilder bldg when I ended my watch a little after 3:00 pm.  All peaceful and quiet.

Now for the catch-up.

Saturday Afternoon, May 30, 2015

I was joined by Lisa McK and Kathy O on the Broad St Bridge.  It was very warm and humid, temps in the high 80’s.  We only stayed a couple hours.  Both Beauty and Dot.ca remained close to the nest box keeping an eye on their eyases who were out and about all over the platform.  They were all very active.

Friday After Banding – May 29, 2015

After banding was complete, I joined Joyce, Susan C, Lynda and Willie in front of the Blue Cross Arena.  From there we had a great view of the Times Square Bldg and the nest box.  Beauty and Dot.ca were doing a lot of flying and patrolling the area. Here are some of the pictures I took.
