Morning Falcon Watch 10-26-15

By Rochester Falcon Watcher MAK

The temperature was 32 (F) 0 (C) when I started my watch at 7:30am but the sky was mostly cloud free enabling the sun to shine once it came up

I decided to spend more time looking for Billie and Seth today since I’ve only seen one falcon at Seneca Towers in the last 4 days. Since there had been a new pair hanging out at Hawkeye (half mile away from ST) I am a bit concerned since I haven’t seen either one of them since last week. Again, I didn’t find a falcon at either location this morning in between checking the Medley Center to the east and Kodak Park on Lake Ave. to the north. I did however, come across some wild turkeys at the top of the Genesee River gorge eating berries from a tree and on the ground.



I decided to check downtown real quick then go back to ST to look some more. I arrived on the Broad St. bridge about 9am after an unsuccessful drive around. I thought I’d check out the river for a few minutes to see if anything turned up. I spotted a falcon on the top arm of the jail tower but couldn’t say who it was because of the distance.


I thought I’d drive over to Troup St. for a closer look but my angel car had other ideas-it wouldn’t start. So that was the end of my watch. After making some phone calls I looked over to see that the falcon was gone. At 9:12am I got a couple tweets from Donna that Beauty and Dot.ca were at the Powers nest site. When I finally got home there still were no falcons to be found at Seneca Towers or Hawkeye. Not sure when I’ll be out for a watch again but I’ll keep smiling if you all do! 🙂
