Ah, our little Jemison free at last. I'll never forget that morning in front of the Rochester Plaza Hotel when I looked in your big beautiful eyes from inside that carrier. I feel we've come full circle since that day especially since Beauty chose your release day to eat a meal across the street from where you first were rescued. A building she's never been seen on before today.  See you on the other side sweet boy! heart

I felt very honored to witness Jemison's return to the wild.  I truly wish that ALL the Watchers could have seen him fly off until he was just a dot.  All the Rochester Watchers played a part in saving this beautiful creatures life.  and now, he'll do what he was born to do, be a Peregrine Falcon.  Thank you fellow Watchers for all you do to keep them safe.   clap  This release wouldn't have been possible without all of your hard work and long days on the streets of Rochester.

The sky was overcast, raining on and off.  But, it stopped raining just as we were searching for the perfect spot to release Jemison.  Mike stopped his truck and we all pulled over.  The box containing Jemison was placed gently on the ground.  June volunteered to open the top of the box, while the rest of us had our cameras ready.  Kathy had received a quick lesson on how to use one of mine, while I switched to video.  Be sure to check out the Imprints post for an update, the addition of two videos I took of Jemison's release.

As June slowly slid the top of the box over to the side, a blur of brown and yellow launched itself from the box.  Jemison blew by Jim P out over the swamp and never looked back.  

It started to rain, so I grabbed my binoculars and watched as Jemison flew higher and higher.  His flapping changed to soaring.  I had a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes as I watched this magnificent creature, finally free.  I never put my binoculars down until he disappeared over the horizon, heading north and west.  He was heading in the direction of Rochester.  Home.  Would he return?  Only time will tell, and the sharp eyes of the Rochester Falcon Watchers looking for a now blue and red band.
