Greg Dysart photographed this merlin off Route 27 in Wayland.  Read Greg's account of the bird sighting below.
Late Thursday afternoon, while passing the Wayland Country Club on Route 27 Wayland, I spotted something in a dead tree where I had seen and photographed a Merlin last February. I circled back and pulled into the Country Club's parking area and took a closer look with my binoculars and realized it was a Merlin again!
It was 4:30 and getting dark but I managed to get a photo.
Same bird back again?
