A Wonderful Sunday Falcon Watch – 2/26/12

By Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P.


Unity on the right, Mystery Tiercel on the left. 2/26/12

In my book, there is no better way to spend a few hours on a Sunday, with good friends and watching beautiful birds.  🙂

Watchers included: Dana, Joyce, MAK, Dan S and Carol P.

It was a very cold day, but when the Sun came out, boy did it feel good!

There was a whole lot of activity by Unity and the mystery Tiercel.  As we wait for the possible return of Beauty and Archer, all we can do is keep an eye on what is happening in downtown Rochester.

Mystery Tiercel Takes Off! 2/26/12

 I’ve put together a KGallery Album with lots of pictures from today and my report.


Enjoy and let me know if you have any questions.

    Lovely pictures Carol…Do you think this is the same tiercel that has been around lately?

  2. Debbie H. Says:

    Thanks you all!! It was exciting watching them from the cam for a while this afternoon. God bless & let’s hope for the best!

  3. Carol P. Says:

    Thanks Ginny and Debbie!

    @Ginny – At this time there is no way of knowing if this is the same Tiercel or not. Sadly, none of my pictures showed the mystery tiercel’s legs, so I have no idea if he is banded or not. Maybe one of my long-lens friends can answer that question after looking at their pictures.

    Wonderful pictures, Carol! Lots of action. Unity looks so much larger than B in the nest box.
    I am dying to know who this tiercel is.
    I love to watch the falcons, but I fear for Beauty when she is released and I fear what happens when Archer returns.

  5. Carol P. Says:

    Thank you Margaret. There are sure a lot of unknowns coming our way. All we can do is wait and keep watching and hope that everything ends with no injuries to any of our falcons. I know, wishful thinking.
