Subject: [MASSBIRD] Merlin: Great Sippewissett Marsh - Photos!
Made a late afternoon visit on Friday to Great Sippewissett Marsh in Falmouth. While walking south along Black Beach, noticed a dark hawk perched in low shrubs in an elevated dune just back from the shore along the barrier beach. After getting a bit closer, and using the dune as a natural shield, was able to observe and photograph under terrific late day lighting conditions. Wind from the west at 9MPH and temp 63F.


For those with an interest, 3 images posted of Merlin taking off in flight:
