In the past several days I have encountered (apparently) two different territorial Merlins. For the past 10 days one has been visiting the area around a new stormwater drainage pond along Quail Run in South Burlington— calling frequently, roosting in tall maples near the pond. Yesterday I observed another (or the same?) Merlin behaving similarly near Country Club Rd. in Burlington. The two sites are about 3 miles apart, as the Merlin flies.
