Eyes to the Skies

Monday afternoon Falcon Watch 2-27-17

By Rochester Falcon Watcher MAK

It was quite breezy and sunny with a temperature of 51 (F) 11 (C)

When I left Seneca Towers (ST) there were no falcons on the building. When I arrived downtown I found Beauty on the deck and Dot.ca (DC) on the top I-beam of OCSR near the south corner. I parked at the Radisson Hotel by Main St. where I could see both of them.

They both had their backs to me and after a few minutes I left to walk Bella (watcher Jeanne’s dog) and to check the Brighton location(BS) and DSS. We found the unbanded female on the south face of the east extension 2 windows down in the corner at BS. She was napping on and off. We left there and found no falcons at DSS.

I returned to downtown after dropping Bella off at home and found the Beautyful one and DC ย still in the same spots as when I left them earlier. I went home to ST and spotted Billie and Seth on the northwest corner quite close to each other.


The sun was right behind them so all I could get were silhouetted pics, therefore I decided to cross the river and see if I could get better pics from Bridgeview Dr. While I was crossing the Veteran’s Memorial Bridge Seth flew off, so when I found a spot to check from only Buffalo Billie remained. I could see that she had food in her crop.

I ended my watch soon after at 4pm with a smile after seeing 5 Peregrine Falcons on my watch! ๐Ÿ™‚
