One morning, recently, as I was rushing to leave for work because I was already late, I heard an unusual bird call outside accompanied by the familiar caw of angry crows. I looked out the window to see three extremely agitated crows in the oak tree in the backyard. Looking out each window throughout my house I finally spotted this beautiful female Merlin who had just captured this Mourning Dove, RIGHT in my backyard. I realized at this point that I was going to be much later for work than I had originally thought and ran for my camera. Endicott, NY
