Saturday Afternoon Falcon Watch – 2/6/16

By Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P.

It was very cold and lightly snowing when I started my watch.  But the sun finally  broke through making it bearable.  Always good to see the sun!

During my watch I found only two falcons, Beauty and Dot.ca.  They were together on the north side of the OCSR on the top IBeam.  Both were napping, preening and looking around.  Both had full crops.  So, Beauty must have found her leftovers from this morning, or maybe had another successful hunt.  lol

I checked out all the other Rochester Falcon locations but struck out at the Brighton Site, Seneca Towers, Medley Ctr and Russell Station.

I ran into fellow watcher Dana and we decided to check out the gorge across the river from Seneca Towers.  We hoped to find Billie and Seth there, but had no luck finding them.

We did find this very cool nest in one of the trees.  Any ideas what type of bird would use this nest?  We thought may be a Robin.
