Last week, I presented a new yard bird for me as my entry. This week, I’m doing it again.
Towards evening last Monday, I stepped outside with Lacy. As always, I glance around to see what’s going on. Up on the telephone pole just behind the house, I noticed a bird, dining on something.
I went inside, got my camera and began shooting. I thought at first the bird was a Sharp-shinned Hawk. Later when I put the image on the computer, I couldn’t decide whether it was a Prairie Falcon, or a Peregrine Falcon.
Unable to decide, I sent the image to a friend of mine who always helps me with bird photos.
It may be a messy photo, but at least I know what it is now. 8v)
The bird, which was dining on a field mouse, I found out, is, abracadabra…a Merlin.
