While driving into town on 2 last evening got a red light at the
Sheridan/Staples plaza light and looked up at a bird perched on the
street light above us which appeared to be a small falcon. To my
surprise it was a MERLIN looking most like a female taiga. I wished that
light lasted longer but shortly after ID'ing I had a green and had to
motor on. Very cool though. Did any one else see this bird around the
last few days?
