Eyes to the Skies

Thursday Fledge Watch – 6/9/16

By Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P.

Let the fledge watch begin!  Our young eyases are doing a lot of flapping to strengthen their wings for those first flights.

Watchers gathered downtown throughout the day.  Dan, Larry O, Joyce, Kathy O, Brian, Cheryl and Carol P were on the job.

It was a sunny, but cold day with a stiff wind.

The eyases still have a way to go before they take off.  Leo, the only male, will probably be our first fledge.  Maybe this weekend?  You just never know.

Beauty and Dot.ca are busy keeping the sky clear of all other birds, including a Great Blue Heron that got a little too close to the Times Square Bldg.

Here are a few pictures from my Thursday Fledge Watch!  Enjoy!

    Gee, I posted a message here, but it does not show up! I said how happy I was that the falcon watch was commencing because now we are likely to get more frequent descriptions of the activities of the falcons.

    I’ll post as frequently as I can Alison.
