MERLIE the MERLIN 1999-2000

SIGHTINGS 1999-2000
The first Merlin seen was on 10/23/98, and was a dark Merlin. This looks like the "real" Merlie, and the date is 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 tall Redwood Tree on Mears Court (MCRW), two houses away from our house.
