Baby Merlin


Here's the photos & a quick 'story'.

Here's a cute little guy! He was found in a driveway in Eagle River with no sign of parents anywhere. The finders observed him most of the day and finally called Bird TLC for help.

Karen Ottenbreit retrieved the little guy and knew right away (it screamed!) that it was a merlin. The exam showed no sign of injuries so we've rehydrated the little guy and sent him off with an experienced foster mom to finish him out.

Let's keep our fingers crossed that he didn't get hurt too badly in the fall.

The merlin-baby-in-a-bowl-on-a-scale pic is hilarious! Poor thing - he's trying so hard to look ferocious and is just... fuzzy!

That is an adorable baby merlin. You get to see the cutest things, dave. I hope we get to see this one in a few weeks, to see the changes.
