January 21, 2019

Location: Fellsmere, St. Sebastian River Preserve State Park

I am known as a Merlin
I'm kind of short and stocky
And I don't have prominent stripes on my tail
So don't confuse me with a Red-shouldered Hawkie.

(Ok, that's a terrible rhyme, but someone complained about me rhyming "US" with "climates" yesterday, so I thought I would really give them something to complain about today ;-)
