Prospect brief

Hi light today of a perched MERLIN harassed by another MERLIN ! In the center of the Nethermead,it was falcon drama where I watched thru my scope from the meadow's southwest corner.

The other quality bird was a female type /juvenile LESSER SCAUP among the Shovelers inside the West Island cove. Adding to feeders in play,a female PURPLE FINCH grabbing seed.

Over at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, a flyover juvenile COOPERS HAWK at the Native flora section.
