Subject: [Tweeters] More Merlins... Date: Wed Jul 28 20:38:30 PDT 2021 From: Doug Santoni - dougsantoni at gmail.com
I had houseguests visiting a week ago, and while dining on our patio (in Madison Park in Seattle, adjacent to the Arboretum), a Merlin landed toward the top of our neighbor's large evergreen. I see them in migration and occasionally in the winter, but it was nice to have a summer visit!
> Like Rachel I too had a very dark Merlin on Monday, in n. Everett nearing the northbound on ramp for the 528 bridge. My second over the last couple months in the area, notable as most summers don't seem to produce any.
