Sept.16 Very Slow..Beautiful Perched Merlin

Todays count was but 14 raptors. While early winds were favorable,there was virtually no flight of raptors. The video is of a perched Merlin.

Perched Merlin
Head Turned Right Around(note how the markings look like fake eyes)
The final count of 14 raptors was:
1-Turkey Vulture
2-Northern Harriers
8-Sharpshinned Hawks
1-American Kestrel
The Merlin was the real highlight of the day. We searched the skies relentlessly,but were unable to make Broadwings appear!
