Merlin Falcon

Falco columbarius


This spotting had some tempered action. The falcon arrived first in the park, followed closely by the raven. The two came together a couple of times moving around the tree. Eventually the falcon was chased off by the raven. The park I was shooting in is a higher elevation area then the surrounding residential area and is well forested. I will be returning to see if falcon lives there. I find the time of year for this spotting to be rare.
