Friday Morning/Afternoon Fledge Watch – 6/19/20

By Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P.

Watchers during my watch: Dana, Kathy O, Larry O, Linda, Sue & Carrie

Weather: Another absolutely gorgeous day! Temps in the 80’s, sunny, blue sky with some clouds. Rain to the south of us, but dry here in Rochester.

I arrived a little after 6:00 am and ended my watch at 2:30 pm. The first falcon I saw was Dot.ca on the west side railing of Widows Walk. I parked my car and walked around to find the others. Pretty quickly I found Hope up on the NW wing ledge. She was eating her breakfast. Roc was below her on the back of the ledge that is above nest box level. Beauty was on pan cam. Now where was Geraki.

I received a tweet from Larry O. He was out on the Court St Bridge and could see a falcon on top of the Telesca Bldg on the air conditioning unit. I walked back to the hole (Aqueduct St) and met Dana. She had seen a juvie on Telesca and saw it fly over to the Times Square Bldg (TSB). Geraki was now on the TSB back extension north side. All 5 Rochester Falcons were now in view.

Kathy O arrived and we settled down to keep watch over the three juvies. Sue joined us later morning and I ended my watch when Carrie arrived.

During the watch there was a lot of flying by the three juvies, including attempts to land on the wing rings on top of the Times Square bldg by both Hope and Geraki. All 3 are flying well, but the girls still need a little practice with landing.

Here are some of my favorite pics from today’s watch. Enjoy!
