I heard the merlin —
our snow bird come home to nest.
Please pick our backyard!

Young merlin hanging
out in the swamp this morning.
Made food begging calls.

The merlin and the
budgie were noisy today —
one outside, one in.

I watched a merlin
fly tight circles ’round a tree —
tail flared and wings spread.

Saw a green heron
and a merlin this morning.
A great two-bird walk.

Among the pine tree’s
branches sat a merlin! Wow.
Fabulous yard bird.

Saw a merlin zip
along a drainage ditch in
search of lunchtime snack.
