Yessirree, Bill and Joe and others interested in what some juvenile Merlins are up to - this is the first I've seen/heard of a young Merlin out going for dragonflies so far this year - great spot, pics and call !

Caught my attention, and just as I was ready to lie low for a bit and give myself and the local Merlins a rest, I now see that it could be worth jumping back up again to head to the wetlands :-)

Last year there was almost daily Merlin activity at Magnuson Pk. at the wetlands between (to my records) July 31 and Aug. 18. Guess we have a few early birds catching the flies !!!

Thanks for the posts and pics, Bill and Joe - if only I had another one of those battery-operated garden dragonflies - I'd surely award it to the both of you.

I'd appreciate hearing if any of you Tweets also spot the same or similar combination of bird and prey anywhere around the Sound :-)

Kee kee tee hee :-)
