Subject: Merlin at Mid Pines Rd.
After this morning’s CHBC trip to the Jordan Lake Gamelands I decided to bypass home and detour to Mid Pines Rd to look for the Peregrine seen there recently. I arrived too late to see the Peregrine seen earlier, but while watching a flock of pipits, I had a Merlin fly by. The bird landed in the pecan grove area, where it was well seen and multiply-photographed by 4 other birds already in that area.
And besides the pipits, multiple Horned Larks were in the area, including several that were singing.

Good Birding!
