Raptor Wednesday

Through the new year, sightings of Merlins, or at least a Merlin, were pretty regular here from the #ViewFromTheMoraine. Then, after a single sighting in January, nothing until last Saturday in Green-Wood.
It could be that I just haven’t spotted any. More likely is that more of them are on the move now and passing through.
Merlins are known for perching a long time in the same place. (Born to physical-distance in a pandemic?) While I was there, an Eastern Phoebe landed at the top of this ginkgo tree. The Merlin eyed it. The Phoebe then moved on it, and so did I, but the falcon was still there when I left.
