This morning I checked out Standifer Gap Marsh, hoping to find the merlin
that Libby Wolfe and Bruce Dralle ahd reported.  I did observe a red-tailed
hawk perched in a tree.  There were several gadwalls and teals in the front
pond and a female Northern harrier flew from the marsh and began diving at
them. The red-tail joined in and drove the harrier off.
On my way out I observed a red-shouldered surrounded by crows in a tree on
the north side of the marsh.

I checked back at SGM later in the afternoon and finally located the merlin.
