Sunday Morning Falcon Watch – 5/29/16

By Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P. (10 am – Noon)

It was another very warm day here in Rochester, NY.  Temps up into the mid-80’s.  I found some shade down on Aqueduct St (aka “the hole”), set up a chair and enjoyed a couple hours of watching our falcons.  There was a beautiful breeze.  When I arrived, Beauty was up at the nest box with her 4 eyases.  Dot.ca was no where in sight.

It was almost an hour before I saw any activity.  Beauty flew out of the nest box and headed north.  From my position, I could not see where she went.  Possibly towards the Frontier Communication Tower (FCT).

About five minutes later, Beauty returned, landing on Camera #1.  Dot.ca came in with her, landing on the west corner of the top IBeam on OCSR.

Beauty went back to the nest box and Dot.ca took off, heading south.

For the remainder of my watch it was quiet.  I ended my downtown watch at noon.  As I was pulling out of the parking lot, I spotted Dot.ca on the Widow’s Walk railing.  He was definitely in hunt mode.  I spent a few moments with him before he took off, looking for food for his four hungry young ones.
