Backyard Visitor

This new visitor has been causing a stir in our yard for a few weeks now.

We think it is a female Merlin and we know when she is about by the number of bird strikes to the windows (despite the decals) as the sparrows and finches attempt a getaway.

We now know, if the yard is quiet, she must be lurking.

Beauty comes in many forms.

Cool! I wish we had wildlife in our back yard. Just huge garden spiders and doves for us ;)

Wow, look at her. A special visitor indeed.

That's awesome! We don't have much wildlife in our backyard, except for squirrels :)
