Jordan Lake: One never knows what the next bend in the lake’s shoreline will bring to you. This time the bend brought Captain Doug and I into the presence of a merlin! I see a few merlins every winter, but, I have never seen one at Jordan Lake in late April. This small falcon calmly ignored the gawking humans and kept looking for a bird for its next meal.
Jordan Lake: The purple martins have returned and they are interested in finding a mate. Like in this sequence: the female perched at the top of the snag sure turns a cold shoulder to the questing male who is talking to, or is it at her. She looks away. She looks past her suitor. He apparently sees another female and dashes off … which sends the female off on her on. Life in the spring time is often full of such searches.
