This evening, a Merlin appeared in a tall conifer next door while, Clare, Joseph, and I were having dinner out on the deck. We live about a half mile south of Discovery Park, a few blocks up from the bluffs. The Merlin stayed for quite a while, allowing us a good look. We think it looked like a juvenile Black Merlin, but we could be wrong.

We occasionally see Merlins flying over our house. Are Merlins still nesting in Seattle? Could this one be a newly fledged bird from a local nest?
