#BirdPoker 'carnivores' +Bird Poker curated by +Phil Armishaw

Merlin, Kitchener, Ontario. Last summer I had a pair of Merlins nest near my house, which is unusually far south. It seems they're back, so I'm quite excited. The House Finch probably has had a different perspective. Taken in the dreary rain yesterday from my attic.

+Declan Troy , unfortunately it is hard to say most of the time as they are so fast and usually perch high in the trees. I have definitely seen a couple house finches and found the bloody wings of dark-eyed junco under a perch I saw one eating at. Of these three, they've all been males, though I don't know if that is just because the males are easier to ID from a distance or perhaps they are more exposed trying to find a mate, but likely just sampling error (n=3 after all).

Thanks +Declan Troy . The snow on the ground served as a reflector and the thin clouds as a soft box. Once the sun came all the way out, this guy sought refuge in the shade, despite the cold.
