SOUTH BAY BIRDERS UNLIMITED


 

MERLIE the MERLIN 2004-2005

SIGHTINGS 2004-2005
Merlie was first seen on 10/25/04 at 4:00 pm by Marianne Dieckmann who lives near Merlie's tree (we were out of town).

Our first observation, upon returning from a birding trip to South Africa (great trip), was on 11/4/04 (see below).

Another Raptor who is a regular in the Winter, at least the last four years, is Jamie, our female Red-tailed Hawk. [Buteo jamaicencis, in case you wondered about her name.] She sits on the MCRW (see below). She spends quite a few hours each day on this tree.

The following sightings are for Merlie on TOP of the College Terrace Redwood Tree (see main page for street address). Sometimes he sits on the "side branch" (SB), and this is indicated below. Sometimes Merlie sits on a tall Redwood Tree at 935 Mears Court (MCRW), two houses away from our house.
