Eyes to the Skies

Morning watch 10-3-11

By Rochester falcon watcher MAK

The morning started out dark,rainy and foggy once again today but by the time my watch ended the clouds and fog were breaking up and the sun was shining! As I drove over to theΒ  east side and went to the parking lot of the Strong Museum of Play I spotted a falcon flying between Xerox and HSBC and then it landed on the south side of HSBC. It flew off less than 30 seconds later and disappeared into the fog. I drove over to the north side of HSBC where I could see Beauty perched on the northwest corner.

5 minutes later she flew off in to the fog again. I drove around and checked each side of HSBC without finding her and then headed over to the Broad St. bridge. After 20 minutes of searching without a sighting I returned to the east side and found the Beautyful one on the southwest corner of HSBC. She had given me the slip and doubled back after I drove away! lol

Beauty and I watched the changing weather for nearly an hour as the light rain stopped and the sun started to burn off the fog and peak through the clouds. Just as I was getting ready to call it a watch and pack up my gear she flew off going south. I watched until she became a speck in the sky and disappeared. I never saw Archer and wondered if perhaps he has gone on his migration for Carol didn’t report seeing him at KP this morning either. I went on a short evening watch last night with Joyce and have a couple pics of Unity and the black sky that was behind the complex to share before I end this report.


Enjoy the day and keep smiling! πŸ™‚
