Merlins predominantly use old American Crow nests to raise their broods, so parks, cemeteries and golf courses are typical nest locations. Nests often in softwoods like pines, balsam fir, or spruce. If there’s a row of softwoods anywhere near the Home Depot, you might find additional fledglings. – Chris Martin

There are 2 adult and 1 juvenile Merlin perched, preening, and calling to each other, adjacent to the Hone Depot loading dock. Assuming their nest must have been nearby, it’s an interesting choice of location.
