Fledge Watch – Callidora & Jemison Together Again, 6/30/10 (4-7 pm)

Rochester Falcon Watcher:  Carol P.

After a marathon 15 hour Falcon Watch yesterday, I was happy to just sit in the sun and enjoy the company of my fellow Watchers for a very quiet Watch tonite.  Callidora had returned to the Times Square bldg (TSB), Jemison had been reunited with his wayward sister and Archer and Beauty seemed content to hang out with the kids.

When I first arrived, Jemison was sitting on the front (east side) of the TSB, one level up from the nest box.  Callidora was on the same level, south side.  Archer was above them on the base of the SE wing and Beauty was flying around, keeping watch over her family.

Lots of Watchers gathered during the time I was on Watch.  Carrie, Jeanne, Joyce, Kathy O, MAK, Dana, Lou, Marcia L, Carla P, Mark B, Dan and Lisa McK.

Our only excitement was when Beauty brough in prey, something big.  Probably a pigeon.  Jemison had flown around a bit and landed just below Callidora and that’s where Beauty brought the food.  She spent quite awhile feeding Jemison while Callidora screamed for her share.  But Beauty decided to just feed Jemison and left with the remainder to cache away for later.

We thought that maybe Beauty was not feeding Callidora for a reason.  Maybe to help with her fledging.

The rest of my Watch was uneventful.  Jemison returned to the nest box area, Archer was still on the base of the SE wing of the TSB, Beauty was on the top I-beam of the old Changing Scenes Restaurant and Callidora was still in the same spot on the south side of the TSB.

All was quiet & peaceful when I left at 7:00 pm.

    A well earned breather, Carol. Bet you just can’t wait till next year when you’ll have four or five Jem’s and Calli’s to watch. 🙂
