Well, any day at Clark College where my first bird is a MERLIN and not a
gull whose neck has the color and consistency of a sock that Calliope the
dog has chewed is bound to be a good day. The MERLIN has been sitting
atop the large evergreen tree next to Pechanec Hall on campus--this is the
second time I've seen one up there this fall, so perhaps this is the same
bird setting up winter territory. Maybe it'll eat a gull or two ;)
