Had a similar experience at Long Beach WA years ago. Was staying at a
friend's house and stepped outside onto the porch just as
a Merlin was flying close by. The Merlin swerved upward, dropping a
defunct Starling at my feet. I placed the Starling on a railing in
plain sight as I left the house, but the Merlin didn't return. I guess
there were plenty more 'live ones' out there.
