I spent some time about a week ago watching this merlin at Tiscornia.
He was pretty hungry. I watched it eat a warbler, and then fly out over the lake before returning with a Golden-crowned Kinglet. It then caught a Ruby-crowned right along the pier which it devoured as well.
I watched the gulls knock down a few Brown Creepers over the lake; this one made it through though.
This Ring-billed Gull decided since it could catch passerines over the water, that a longspur on the beach (in New Buffalo) was fair game.
Merlins chase each other for no apparent reason.
Their prey, not so much. This Lincoln's Sparrow stayed tight to the cover.
As did 2 Cape May Warblers, this is the brighter of the two
Lastly a gratuitous moon pic that I never got up while my computer was down. It's in the aftermath of the eclipse last month. I missed the actual eclipse due to work, but I took a pic when I got home as there can still be pretty fun skies at 4am.
