Willets, Merlin on FR 166, Palmetto Meadows

Casual water at Palmetto, specifically on Farm Road 166 1/4 mile east of Highway 125, continues to attract great birds. This week Charley Burwick saw a Merlin chasing a Spotted Sandpiper there.

Today Jan Horton reported Willets in the same place. Here's a picture that Marvin DeJong took this afternoon. There are more photos on the GOAS Message Board.Bobolinks also arrived on the same road today. I'm hoping that everything holds for one more day so I can get out there.
