tree full of red-winged blackbirds with their glorious din! And robins returning! Now is the time to learn the unforgettable high chatter of that fabled, once rare bird of prey, the Merlin. Because any day now, the Merlins of Montpelier will return for another year of pigeon hunting and nesting! And you will only see them if you hear them and look up! So, Google “Merlin,” click on “All about Birds,” and listen to the call. Then head out for an April PoemCity stroll, enjoying the poems along State and Main, keeping your ears open for the annual return of our Merlin pair!
