Merlin

Photo and caption by John Murabito

I saw this Merlin sitting on a dead tree, when all of a sudden he he flew off and made this wide loop coming back about five feet off the ground so fast it looked like a big blur, grabbing this bird as it was coming off the ground,the speed was incredible.The bird was only about twenty feet from where he originally was but he made this wide loop to catch it by suprise and maybe to build up speed.This is a small but deadly falcon that suprise and grab their prey just above ground level at high speeds.

Location: Salisbury Beach Massachusetts
