Merlins in Town

Three Merlin Chicks

  Earlier in the week Dave Dister emailed that a pair of Merlins had built a nest about a quarter of a mile from the street with all the stop lights.  They had not only constructed a nest but filled it with 4 brand new Merlins.

All four nestlings

Checking in and dropping off.

Not lingering

   The young birds appear to really close to fledging and are wandering in and out of the nest.
One venturing out.

Why don't you join her.

Curious apprehension

Testing the wings
  Much thanks to the home owner for allowing me to stop by and enjoy the show.
