Merlin Again at Muskegon State Park

Although the winds were easterly today, they may have been too strong or it may have been too cloudy.  In an hour on "Jeff's Dune" at Muskegon State Park this morning I only counted five migrating raptors (3 Northern Harriers and 2 Sharp-shinned Hawks).  

The Merlin was again in a tree alongside the road and allowed me to take his portrait.

The only other birds of interest were three adult Bald Eagles flying up by Snug Harbor.
