Eyes to the Skies

Wednesday Morning Falcon Watch (7:30 – 9:00 am) – 8/5/20

By Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P.

Morning Watcher: Carol P.

Morning Falcons: Beauty and Dot.ca

Weather: Very cool. Jacket Weather! Blue Sky and Sunny.

After a couple days off, I decided to do a quick falcon watch. Hoping to find a juvie, but not seeing one for the hour and a half that I was downtown.

But, I did see Beauty and Dot.ca from the Court St Bridge. Dot.ca was on the south side of OCSR and Beauty was almost done eating her breakfast on the west side (river side) of the Rundel Library.

Beauty had a very large crop and had almost completed her breakfast (pigeon). When she was finished, Dot.ca flew over and took the leftovers. Beauty then took off and flew over the river on the north side of the Broad St Bridge.

I drove over to the Andrews St Bridge and found both Beauty and Dot.ca. Beauty was on the north side of OCSR and Dot.ca was on the west side of the Riverside Hotel, on a top window ledge.

Dot.ca quickly finished the leftovers and flew over to the south side of OCSR. I ended my morning falcon watch with both Beauty and Dot.ca settled on OCSR.

On the way home, I drove by Seneca Towers. No luck seeing any falcons there.

Here are some pictures from my morning watch. Enjoy!

    Dang, you’re good. I keep looking at the Rundel Library picture trying to see a falcon there! But I will take your word for it:-)

    lol Alison. Look at the ledge, below roof level. Beauty is on that ledge above the 3rd window in from the right. Look for a small bump. πŸ™‚
