Here’s a merlin eating what I have decided must be a Junco, atop a tree in Fort Bayard.”

If you spot a hawk or any other bird of prey around town, lunching or otherwise, please send a photo and an email where you spotted it to [email protected] Hawks around Town is made possible by a generous grant from the Ben and Sylvia Gardner foundation.

    Cool! Merlins are so cute, til you see them like that and realize they’re just small, speedy killing machines!

    • You say that like it’s a bad thing.
