I'm pretty sure I saw the west end Merlin again this afternoon. I was sitting at the light at Taughannock Blvd and Buffalo St, adjacent to Mickey Roof Jeweler. The Merlin flew out of one of the trees in the vacant lot on the inlet side, flew right across in front of my car at windsheild height, and up over Island Fitness toward the inlet. It was so fast I only got a look at the back and fanned tail. He was tipping and turning as they do when flying through woods.
Very cool to see him/her. Cayuga Dog Rescue has saved more than 575! dogs since 2005!
