Raptor Wednesday

On Saturday, two passes through Green-Wood Cemetery on either side of brunch came up zilch on the raptor count, so Sunday I went back in amidst the nuthatches, kinglets, and warblers. Within a ten-minute period, I’d spotted a Sharp-shinned Hawk, two Red-tailed Hawks, a Merlin, and then an American Kestrel: now, that’s more like it!

The Kestrel was munching on a dragonfly, probably a Common Green Darner. And then the Merlin showed up.img_0755You can just see the dragonfly in the enlarged version.

Welcome back Raptor Wednesday…!
