I was sitting at home sick today, and Kellie called me over - a raptor had just nabbed a bird and landed on the ice rink across the street. I ran to grab our binoculars so that we could see it better. A couple of crows flew in - hoping to steal food from the smaller raptor. As the raptor took off to get away from the crows, we identified it as a Merlin! Nice to get a new yard bird and a bird for my green big half year without even leaving the house!
