Nobody is home yet but we do have merlins overwintering in town every year now, so very likely it was a merlin, particularly since we have quite a number nesting in the HSC area.

A couple years ago TPC and I spent some time in late Dec ( colder than he- - ) looking for a bird that had been sighted...the Security people thought we were nuts ?? A number of years back a female wintered over and I'm sure Tracy will fill in the name and year.
Soooooooooooooo keep checking.
I don't think a Peregrine could hide in this city with out being spotted...just my thoughts.

Cheers !

My heart skipped a beat this morning - not a good thing for a Monday morning.

A hawk was sitting on the rooftop of the Buhler building right above the letters the peregrines like to hang out on. Had to look twice.  I think it might have been a merlin, but it was too high up to get a really good look at it.

My first thought was peregrines...this is way too early.
