Subject: [VTBIRD] Merlins - Rutland Town
The pair of Merlins that has kept our neighborhood lively this summer appears to have been successful.
Yesterday we witnessed one of the adults fly into a tree where the other was perched and transfer prey, which the perched merlin promptly flew off with.
Today a well-grown juvenile was flapping up and down in the nest and hopping out to the branches.
