Wednesday Morning Falcon Watch (8:30 – 10:30 am) – 8/19/20

Beauty on Mercury

By Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P.

Morning Watchers: Larry O & Carol P.

Morning Falcons: Beauty, Dot.ca and a Falcon Flyover

Morning Weather: Cool, Blue sky, sunshine and Fluffy White Clouds

During the morning watch, Beauty was in serious hunt mode, even though she had a pretty big crop. She was chasing pigeons all over, especially behind the Times Square Bldg and over the Federal Bldgs. She hung out a lot on the Mercury Statue. Dot.ca was always nearby, first on OCSR and then over on the Powers Bldg.

While I had both of them in view, a 3rd falcon flew over, heading towards Xerox. It was smaller, the size of a male, but I wasn’t able to get a picture to verify if it was adult or juvie. I did search for the 3rd falcon, but was unable to find it.

Here are some pictures from the morning watch. Enjoy!

    Thank you Penny! 🙂

  3. Alison in Indiana Says:

    Unfair contest, Mercury is stuck on the puff of air from that Wind whose face he is floating above.
    Which might it be: Boreas the North-Wind, Zephryos (Zephyrus) the West, Notos (Notus) the South, or Euros (Eurus) the East?
