Songbirds in Peril!

Thousands of warblers, sparrows and other song birds were migrating through the Duluth area yesterday afternoon. The Merlins and Peregrine Falcons were very aware of that fact. The songbirds flew out into the open at their peril. The Peregrine Falcon was having sparrow for dinner near the Lakewood Pumping Station, while the Merlin preferred a yellow rumped warbler. Perhaps it all tastes like chicken!
