We had a crow's nest in one of the highest pine trees in our backyard. A Merlin pair came in a took over the nest.
They were in and out of the nest on a regular basis, allowing me to conclude they were raising a family. After watching them for quite some time we began to see the fledgling start flying. In this photo, one of the fledglings landed on the ground nearby and I was able to phot him.
