Morning watch 1-16-12

By Rochester falcon watcher MAK

It was a cool 5 degrees when I left for my watch this morning. When I arrived downtown I checked FCT first then KO without any sign of Beauty. I then drove down Broad St. and parked beside the Democrat and Chronicle across from the Times Square building. I wasn’t there long when I spotted the Beautyful one flying in from the north and landing on the money bag hand of Mercury. I tweeted it out and then drove over to Aqueduct St. to get a closer view and take some pics.

She didn’t stay long and tho it’s of poor quality I got the takeoff shot.


I searched the city in all the usual spots checking KO often without finding her until I parked on the Andrews St. bridge and looked through my binocs to see a tail hanging off the northeast corner of the launchpad. I quickly drove down State St. to confirm that it was Beauty and tweeted it out. Next I went down to Mill St. in the high falls district where I took some pics and a video of her while she ate whatever she had for breakfast way up there.

It was time to leave at this point so that I could Joyces’ car to her for work. Thanks so much Joycie for giving me this opportunity to spend a morning with the Beautyful one! This surely put a smile on this watchers face! 🙂

Check out the link below to watch Beauty eating her breakfast.
