Marilyn is Back

Marilyn is Back

Our regular winter resident Marilyn the Merlin is back again. We first saw her last week when a pigeon crashed into the window followed closely by Marilyn. She tried really hard but to no avail. The pigeon escaped but we did find her again on the top of a power pool eating a much smaller meal. Yesterday she flew right past us so we got a good closeup of her and we were able to put our really nice B3 spotting scope on her and get a good prolonged look at her. I took Deniz's advice last month and applied for the class set of binoculars through the Cornell Bird lab and we ended up winning a class set. Really nice set of 10 Celestron 8x30 binoculars. Over five hundred teachers applied and we were one of twelve winners. I think that most of the credit goes to Bird by Bird. This program helped me get the ornithology program up and running here at Kuna which helped me to be able to write a strong application.
