Fledge watch 7-28-12

By Rochester Falcon Watcher MAK

Well I had every intention of being downtown early this morning-not much luck with that.  It was raining out so I put my camera and binocs in a plastic bag and I put on a light vinyl jacket with a hood to keep me dry-wrong-not waterproof. I left the house and walked half way to the bus stop before realizing I didn’t  have my phone or money! Ugh! went back home,grabbed them and consequently missed the bus by 2 or 3 minutes. When I returned home again I was soaked through and had to change my clothes. Not wanting to put myself through that again I texted CarolP and asked for a ride…

So Carol picked me up and we made our way downtown arriving about 8:30am. Dana was there already parked down in the hole Aqueduct St. Dot.Ca(DC) was on the northwest wing ring,Beauty was on the west corner 2nd ibeam of OCSR and Orion was being quiet up at the nestbox.  Half hour later DC flew to land under the northeast wing on the Times Square building(TSB). DC then flew off to the south fast.


At the time I thought breakfast is on the way!  Next thing we know DC came shooting out from behind the TSB flying east, he then returned and dropped food off to the singer. DC flew to OCSR briefly landing before taking off for the was on thetippy top of TSB landing on the northwest wing ring.

What a busy guy! After Beauty brought Orion food DC then settled over on  the top ibeam south side of OCSR for a while. Orion and mom hung out on the deck.

Dan came by just before 11:00 and Beauty flew over to the OCSR building coming to rest on the west corner 2nd ibeam. It remained this way for a long time and it was quiet time for Orion. DC went under the northeast wing on the TSB and KathyO joined the watch. A while later Dan left after Beauty flew northwest and DC went south right after. KathyO had to be leaving soon and since my head was pounding and my back hurting I grabbed a ride home from her. I always smile a lot when I’m watching falcons with my falcon friends no matter what! 🙂
