Morning Falcon Watch 10-24-15

By Rochester Falcon Watcher MAK

The sky was dark with overcast conditions and a temperature of 42 (F) 6 (C)

I started my watch at 7:30am and didn’t see a falcon at Seneca Towers or Hawkeye. After a couple trips around downtown I was starting to wonder if I would see a PEFA today, so I occupied myself by taking in the fall colors and the Genesee River, which was pretty mellow this morning. Β The ivy on the Thomson Reuters building was especially pretty.


The gulls were enjoying the various trees in the river for gathering and preening. It’s funny how they’ll get on those trees but I’ve never seen a gull in an upright, live tree.


Finally at about 8:15am, while I was on the Court St. bridge I checked one of Dot.ca’s (DC) hunting spots and I could barely see him up there on the north side first column from the northwest corner. I drove to the Legacy Tower circle where I had a better and closer angle on him.


After a while I took a ride around to search for Beauty but had no luck so I went to Elm St. behind Midtown to watch DC from the north side of Xerox. At 8:37am DC flew to the north in a big hurry-he may have been hunting.


I never did find another PEFA-not downtown, Hawkeye, Medley Center or Seneca Towers. That didn’t stop me from smiling as I ended my watch around 9:45am because I saw DC and that’s more than a lot of people get to see! πŸ™‚

    I love that ivy. I once heard what type of ivy it is, but the name escapes me now.
