MERLIE the MERLIN 1997-1998

SIGHTINGS 1997-1998
The first Merlin seen was on 9/14/97. It was a light colored Merlin. The next Merlin seen was on 10/20/97, and was a dark Merlin. This looks like the "real" Merlie, and the date is more in keeping with previous years. The following sightings are for Merlie on the College Terrace redwood tree (see main page for address). Sometimes Merlie sits on a Mears Court Redwood Tree (MCRW), two houses away from our house.
