Merlin

Not a Merlin, just some gulls on the fairgrounds

Hanging up laundry...a daily task in summer. Glanced up to see a Mourning Dove fleeing in my direction. I had been watching one in the dead elm and looked to see if it was that one.

Nope. It was still there. 

Then a checkered blackish falcon whizzed by with grackles in hot pursuit. 

Oh, my word, a Merlin! Not a life bird, but a year bird for sure. 

How cool is that?
