Sunday Morning Falcon Watch (6:30 – 10:30 am) – 8/2/20

By Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P.

Morning Watchers: Dana, Larry O & Carol P.

Morning Falcons: Beauty & Dot.ca; Billie & Beau

Weather: Warm and muggy, with a bit of light rain on and off.

Again, there were no juvies found this morning. We did have 4 adults hanging out, Beauty and Dot.ca on the north side of OCSR and we also saw Billie and Beau on the Vets Bridge near Seneca Towers. All the adults were relaxing.

This is always a sad time of the year for the falcon watchers. It’s been so much fun keeping track of our juvies this year. Without bands, we’ll never know how they do in the future. I’ll miss seeing Roc, Geraki & Hope. They have been a joy to watch. Stay safe little ones and safe travels.

It’s time for me to take a break, so I won’t be going out every morning. When I do go out, I’ll report any falcon sightings.

Here are some pictures from my morning watch. Enjoy!

    Hey Carol, if you block out the upside down circle and rectangle, it looks like another flyby. Love how you get the falcons with flags.

  2. Carol P. Says:

    lol Joyce! You know I love the flag shots. 🙂

    Thank-you so much for the frequent photo stories of the falcons this season. Special thanks for including Billie and Beau in this final in the series. I will continue to read the tweets in the Forum for a bit of news.

    You’re welcome Alison. I still plan on checking downtown, just not every morning. I’ll let you all know what I see. 🙂
