Last Sunday’s DeKorte Walk

We had a great Labor Weekend Bird Walk on Sunday at DeKorte, with a nice turnout and lots of good birds — including three — count 'em, three — Bald Eagles and a Merlin (above). You can see from John Fagan's photos (above and "on the jump" ) how much Merlins resemble young Peregrine Falcons. Thanks, John!
