Wednesday Morning Falcon Watch – 7/20/16

By Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P.

The young juvies continue to be seen, but less often.  Watchers were out last night and saw only Beauty and Dot.ca.

When I arrived downtown this morning, around 6 am, I saw three falcons from the Andrews St Bridge.  Dot.ca was on the north side of OCSR on the top Ibeam.  Beauty was on the Power’s Bldg nest box camera.  The third was a juvie on the base of Mercury.  I was too far away to ID it.

I joined Dan on the Court St Bridge, where we could only see Beauty and the juvie.  Larry soon joined us with his new friend Zeke!

All was quiet, and Larry & Dan had to leave.  It was time for me to search for some falcons!

I found two juvies on Widow’s Walk.  After looking at my pictures, I found out they were Leo and Aria.  I watched them for a good hour before they both took off heading east.  Soon after they left, Beauty landed on the Widow’s Walk railing.  She got down to some really serious preening.  I believe she had brought in food for her two young ones.  🙂

Here are some pictures from my morning watch.  Enjoy!

    I love that pic of Leo too! So glad you saw two of the juvies…hard to think they’re starting to wander already. Thanks to you and all the watchers this year for the many hours spent keeping an eye on our foursome and for your many reports/pics..so far, it’s been a great year!

    Larry. Zeke is a little doll*

    Zeke may be new to Larry and I am sure he is an adoring and adorable pet, but that grey muzzle makes me think he is about the same age as his human….

    I am delighted we have two juvies accounted for again. Hope the others are surviving the dangers of 21st century life in the big city.

  7. Annie in Montana Says:

    Appreciate all the reports and pictures. Thank you and all the watchers for keeping track of our beloved falcons. Zeke is a cutie. Larry got a new friend and Zeke got a home – perfect.

  8. Kris G. Says:

    Forgot to mention in my comment that Zeke is adorable..happy for Larry and his new buddy!

  9. Carol P. Says:

    Thank you Carol for all you have done these past few months in offering great views of the falcons. I will miss not seeing them but hope they all have good luck in their journeys.

    Thanks Alice! Every day we see them is a gift!

  13. Carol P. Says:

    Thank you Diane! Zeke is a well loved dog. 🙂

  14. Alison in Indiana Says:

    There seem to have been a LOT more Powers visits this year than in previous years. I wonder if anyone will try to move in there?

  15. Carol P. Says:

    Aria and Leo are still hanging out with Beauty and DC. We have not seen Matilda and Lilac for quite some time.

  16. Carol P. Says:

    Yay! Matilda came home for a visit on Sunday! Saw Leo and possibly a 2nd juvie this morning. 🙂
