Saturday Morning Fledge Watch – 6/20/20

By Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P.

Watchers from 6:00-11:00 am: Dana, Kathy O, Larry O, Lisa McK and Carol P.

Weather: Very warm and humid. Temps in the 80’s and humid.

We had some guests this morning! First I met Deborah and Erik. They have been watching the Rochester Falcons since 2010 and wanted to see them in person. It was great meeting both of you and I hope you consider helping with the Fledge Watch next year.

Allysa joined us on the watch this morning for awhile. She was thrilled to see the juvies and especially a closer encounter with Dot.ca up on the Wilder Bldg. Allysa was on her bike, so she could move around a lot quicker than I could on foot. Again, I hope she considers helping out next year. We can sure use the help.

We pretty quickly found and ID’d all five Rochester Falcons early this morning. Throughout the morning, we saw flying by our 3 juvies. Geraki still needs a little more practice with her landings, but she’s doing quite well.

Here are some pictures from the morning watch. Enjoy!

    We have three beautiful juvies this year. So glad to hear others have come to see the falcons. I thoroughly enjoy all the photos since I won’t be there to see them in person this year. Sure wish I could be.

    Coming out to see the falcons in person was so much fun. It was so nice to be welcomed by Carol, she was full of knowledge and my husband & I were ever so grateful. The pictures the falcon watchers post are always so inspiring. We have been watching for years! With such a beautiful set of juvies right now so I’m sure we will be back to see them again some time soon! Thanks for the updates and all of the wonderful posts!
