Thursday/Friday Morning Falcon Watches – 7/14&15/16

By Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P.

Although the fledge watch is officially over, we’ll continue to keep an eye on the young juvies as they learn to hunt and gain the skills they will need for life as a Peregrine Falcon.

They are all doing great!  Most days we are seeing all of them.  Beauty and Dot.ca continue to supply them with food, but I would not be surprised if most of them are hunting on their own now.

Here are some images from my Thursday and Friday morning watches.  Enjoy!

We’ve been hoping to catch the falcons in the gorge near High Falls.  We’ve seen them close, but not in the gorge.  There is an adult and juvie Red-tailed Hawks being seen there.
