Rochester Falcon Watch – 7/18/21

By Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P.

Watchers: Dana and Carol P.

After a long day of record breaking rain fall here in Rochester, NY, I was very happy to get out to check on our falcons.

Dana had already started watching when I arrived. We met on the Court St Bridge. The Genesee River was rocking and rolling. Lots and lots of rain had caused the water to be extremely high and it was moving fast. The river wasn’t the only thing that was active. Golden was out and about and chasing his favorite mom all over the place. Dot.ca was there too, but Golden was Beauty’s little shadow this morning.

Beauty brought in food and landed on the northwest corner of the Cross Rds Bldg. Dot.ca was hanging out on the OCSR. It wasn’t long before Golden came in screaming. He landed next to Beauty and a tug-o-war began. Golden grabbed the food and began to eat his breakfast. Beauty decided she was hungry too and took a bit for herself.

After finishing their small meal, both took off. Beauty in the lead with Golden right behind her. They zipped over the Blue Cross Arena. Golden returned, flying over us, and landed on a OCSR IBeam, below Dot.ca. This is the first time we had seen him land on an IBeam.

Since Golden was settling in for a nap, Dana and I decided to check out the ST location. We saw both adults and all three juvies together. Another first for me.

Ok, here are some of my favorite pictures from my morning watch. Enjoy!
