Subject: [Va-bird] Merlin at Barcroft Park
Today two intrepid birders joined me for the Birding Arlington: Barcroft
Park hike at 8 a.m. The highlights of the hike were a FOS Eastern Phoebe
and a Merlin. We watched the Merlin feed on its catch for several minutes,
and it seemed completely unconcerned about us. At the end of the walk we
circled back and it had remained on its perch. It was in a tall tree at the
back of the main (largest) baseball diamond, right above the paved trail.
