Falcon Watch Report – 8/7/22

By Rochester Falcon Watcher Carol P

Watchers: Larry O, Dana, Linda and Carol P.

Another 3 H Day! Hot, hazy and humid with temps near 90F.

While yesterday was a Blaze morning, today was Kanfai Malachim’s morning. We saw Blaze get food and eat on top of the old Radisson yesterday.

Today started with both adults with food. Neander on Powers and old Radisson and Nova on the NE corner of Wilder. Nova was calling out to the juvies, but neither came in to take her offering.

Both adults took off heading towards Xerox/5 Star area.

We searched and searched with no luck finding any of the falcons. All the watchers settled on the Court St Bridge in the shade.

Finally a falcon, flying high above Xerox and heading our way, over the river and landing on the NW wing ledge of the Times Square Bldg (TSB). We’re pretty sure it was Nova and she was carrying food looking for a juvie. Still no takers.

It was time to search again. Dana and I ended up on the High Falls pedestrian bridge. From there, we could see a juvie on the west side of one of the Water St bldgs, overlooking the river. From the Andrew St Bridge, we got a closer look. When the juvie took off, we could see a blue band. It was Kanfai Malachim!

Kanfai Malachim flew low over the bridge and the river. She crossed the river, flew by the Times Square Bldg and headed north, landing on the Frontier Communication Tower below the platform. Linda, Dana and I set up in the shade.

Kanfai Malachim settled in to preen and nap. After a long rest, she took off heading SE.

We all split up to look for her, but we couldn’t find Kanfai Malachim and we didn’t see Blaze this morning.

When we ended our watch, there was an adult eating under the TSB NW wing ledge. We were pretty sure it was Neander.

As always, I apologize for the poor quality of my pics of pics.
