Fledge Watch Report – 6/23/21

By Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P.

Watchers (during my watch): Dana, Kathy O, Larry O, Dan and Carol P.

6:30 am – 1:00 pm

It was a very happy watch today. It took 4 hours of looking without finding her, but Freyja finally flew in at close to 10:30 am, landing on the metal work between the wings on top of the Times Square Bldg. We all let out a big WOOHOO! when she appeared. This was the first time we had seen her since she fledged. It was so good to see her again, flying and landing so well.

For the first four hours of my watch, we had a lot of activity by Golden, Beauty and Dot.ca. By the end of the watch, both Freyja and Golden had landed on the wings on top of the Times Square Bldg.

I’m really hoping that Golden and Freyja will play together in the coming days, as they learn the skills they will need to survive.

Here are some of my favorite pictures from today. Enjoy!

    “Iā€™m really hoping that Golden and Freyja will play together in the coming days” So do I, but Freyja just doesn’t seem like the playing type these days.
    But look at the determination on her face in “Freyja Climbing the Metalwork”!
