The noisy merlins have returned to Nicholls Park, hopefully to nest again. This morning the male osprey was doing the sky dance flight high above the nest at the soccer field on Ashburnham. He was so high I probably wouldn’t have noticed him except for the contant calling he was doing. The female cardinal is busy gathering nesting material and is building in one of the spruces.
