Eyes to the Skies

Morning watch 9-25-11

By Rochester falcon watcher MAK

Well apparently as I drove through looking for the dynamic duo they were in the nestbox bonding and I didn’t even know it. Nothing new! Even when it’s light out I can’t see Beauty and Archer when they are deep in the nestbox. I drove to the east side after failing to spot them and checked Xerox and HSBC. Upon my return to the Broad St. bridge some 5 minutes after they were caught on camera in the scrape I found Beauty on the 2nd ibeam west corner of the OCSR building. I went down to Aqueduct St. for closer viewing.


It looked to me like she had a full crop. She flew off after about 15 minutes  behind the Times Square building.

I had a feeling she was headed to the jail tower. On my way over to Troup St. I saw her on  on the 2nd arm west side.

The sun was shining on the Beautyful one nicely and I couldn’t resist taking a pic of it!


She left the jail tower when I was taking the pic of the sun and I had no idea what direction she was headed so I went back to Broad St. Now as I read my tweets I see I made an error posting that she was on HSBC. (bad week for me with mistakes) Beauty was in fact on the OCSR building top ibeam at the west corner.


Beauty stayed there for a half hour before dropping off the back side of the building in a stoop. I lost sight of her as soon as she stepped off the building. I spotted her flying to and landing next to the main cam echupping. I thought maybe Archer was up there, then she went into the scrape.


Beauty quickly left according to my trusty assistant Donna manning the cams for me. I left and found both Beauty and Archer over on the FCT east side. She on the bottom arm and he on the top arm.

This is where I left our downtown Rochester pair ending my watch. I made an album of the day for your viewing pleasure and the link is at the bottom of this report. Enjoy the day and smile once in awhile!  🙂
