If you know anyone in Northwestern Maine who might be interested, there
is a family of four Merlins who hang out on a yellow birch snag on the
north side of South Shore Drive about 60 paces west of #89 (aka Moxy
Ledge). South Shore Drive joins Rt 4 about 3 mi south of Rangeley.
Moxy Ledge about 0.6 mi west of Rt 4 44.925167N, -70.626957W). The
birds have been around making all sorts of racket for at least a couple
weeks (presumably working on getting the kids to feed themselves). If
there is anyone at Moxy Ledge, they will welcome birders, if no one is
there, feel free to access the property.
