And two Merlins are there this morning. One perched in a close pine where I can see it, has called a few times. Another one was calling somewhere back in the woods, then it flew in to a second close tree, still calling. The second Merlin flew off a few minutes ago, passing over the first Merlin and calling. The first Merlin is still perched there as of 9:45 AM.
