Belted Kingfisher vs the Merlin August 21, 2010

Jen took me to a small marsh within the city. It was amazing a board walk through a marsh in the middle of new development. Love it. Some great finds there.

A juv merlin was being chased by the Kingfisher. Notice a full crop on the second shot. The kingfisher dissappeared and the Merlin sat in the middle of the marsh.

Jen and I were busy watching the egret when the kingfisher started to chase a hawk. After looking at the shots it was a merlin.

Great Egret

Great Blue Heron

Baltimore Orioles

Slider Turtle - should not be in the marsh. Invasive species
