Christmas with the Raptors III

More Merlin!
This was in the ailanthus behind the solar building… the day before the tree was cut down. the falcon has prey in the third image. Perhaps a House Sparrow, ubiquitous around here.

This tree, which peeked up a few feet above the four-story high solar building — so called because its roof is used for a solar array — had also seen American Kestrel, Cooper’s Hawks, and even Red-tailed Hawks perched on it. And Starlings, Blue Jays, Northern Mockingbirds, House Sparrows…. We will all miss it.

Raptor Wednesday Bonus:
Crows harry a Red-tailed Hawk.
Kestrel communications. They love old antennae.
