Monday Fledge Watch – 6/13/16

By Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P.

It was another cold and blustery day here in Rochester, NY! But that wasn’t stopping Leo, our young juvie from taking many practice flights today.

His landings are still a little rocky, but he’s learning quickly. It’s especially hard to land in these high winds.

The girls, Matilda, Lilac and Aria are continuing to practice their wing flapping, strengthening those muscles needed for flight. It won’t be long until they join their brother and parents.

Sorry, no pictures today. My computer is in the shop.

Today’s watchers were Dan, Larry O, Joyce, Brian H, Carla and Carol P. Many thanks to all the virtual watchers that helped us keep track of what was going on at the nest box. Your help is invaluable!

    Leo may be flying hither and yon, but when I look in now, just before 10 pm I find all four young’uns in the box while a parent keeps watch from the platform in front of it. 🙂 It would be nice if the fledglings came “home” to roost each night like they do at some other scrapes.
