Day of the Dead Visitor
This merlin (we thought he was a sharp-shinned hawk) came to visit us on the Day of the Dead. He showed up in our driveway with a broken wing Sunday night. Andy tried to call around to see if anyone would come pick him up but it was Sunday so Monday morning, after calling the zoo, Tracey Aviary, Hawkwatch, the Ogden Nature Center and animal control, we finally found someone with the Division of Wildlife Management to come and pick him up. We hope they find someone to fix his wing. Maybe he'll even come back and eat more sparrows.
