On my drive into work this morning I noticed a loosely associated group (flock?) of 5 Merlins seemingly hunting low over the salt marsh in front of the Sikorsky Airport Main entrance. It is not unusual to see Merlins in the area now, but I never see this many in such close proximity of one another.

Also, there were three Tree Swallows flying over the marsh - not a very common sight anymore.
