Sunday Morning Fledge Watch – 6/21/20

By Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P.

Watchers this morning (6:30 – 10:30 am): Dana, Larry O and Carol P.

Weather: Yet another gorgeous morning. 70’s this morning, but going up to 89 degrees this afternoon with a chance of possible thunderstorms.

Dana beat me downtown this morning and saw all three juvies eating on the Cross Rds Bldg. When I arrived, Roc flew over us and landed on the lower railing on the Mercury statue. We watched him until he took off heading towards the Powers Bldg, where Beauty was located on the camera there.

We started walking back to the hole. As we turned the corner, we saw Beauty flying in with food with two juvies chasing her. Beauty, Roc, and Geraki landed on the corner of the Philippone Bldg. That’s when Larry O joined the watch.

During the rest of the morning, we had flying by all three juvies. They were very active this morning until 10:15 am, when they all flew to their favorite spots for their mid-day siesta. Geraki on the back of the ledge above the nest box on the Times Square Bldg. Roc flew over to the Powers Bldg and Hope went to the Cross Rds Bldg. Beauty was at the TSB nest box and we found Dot.ca on the top arm of the Frontier Communication Tower. Dana and I ended our morning watch at 10:30 am.

Here are some pictures from my morning watch. Enjoy!

Here’s a little Rochester, NY history. We have spent many hours watching the falcons in the hole, behind the Tallman Bldg.
