Monday Fledge Watch – Lessons in Progress! 6/20/16

By Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P.

One more hot and humid day before we get a break from the heat tomorrow. Mid 90s today to 70s tomorrow. I am so looking forward to the lower temps.

There was a lot of flying by our 4 juvies before it got too hot. Beauty was giving high altitude flying lessons to one juvie. She effortlessly circled higher and higher with barely any wing movement. The juvie attempted to keep up with her vocalizing loudly. Based on size, I believe it was Leo. He finally gave up and flew down to find one of his sisters.

Leo and one of the girls chased each other and talon tagging across the sky. DC watched them from the west corner of OCSR. Leo landed under the NE wing on the Times Square bldg and the girl landed on the Cross Rds bldg. I ended my watch at 11:30 am when they all settled down in the shade.

Lisa, Joyce, Brian and Jeanne are downtown this evening on watch. Both Leo and Aria were at the nest box. The other two were on the ledge below. Beauty brought in a pigeon and the chase was on! Beauty brought the meal to Irving Place, where the Widow’s Walk is located.

Pat had all 4 juvies located this afternoon. Larry and Dan were out early this morning and reported that Beauty fed the juvies on the Rochester Public Library.

Special thanks to Donna for tracking our young juvies and reporting their whereabouts. Your help is much appreciated!

Just another busy day in the life of the Rochester Falcons!
