Interesting the comment about the Merlin going after monarch butterfly's at Quaker Ridge in Greenwich and other comments about Merlin behavior. Of course one good 'clue' for noting a Merlin in migration is noting a distant falcon who suddenly changes it's flight and goes after a much bigger raptor, and I do mean a MUCH bigger raptor. Merlin's are feisty devils. Hey going after a poor monarch is just more one more example of Merlin behavior of going after whoever is around.
