Raptor Wednesday

Merlins above Green-Wood.
Two sightings on one day well separated in space: one or two birds?
The lush meadow rising above the chapel has attracted sparrows and warblers, which means the bird-hunting falcons, too. Bother Merlins and American Kestrels having been perching on this scaffolding and on surrounding trees. Not at the same time: they will chase each off.
(Twice now from our apartment this month I’ve seen these two falcon species chasing each other as well.)
