February Photo-observation of the Month Winner


Photo by Marv Elliot

February’s theme was “food” and the photo-observations submitted to iNaturalist Vermont, a project of the Vermont Atlas of Life, were quite a banquet. Marv Elliot’s shot of a Merlin standing on its prey and staring down the camera was the clear favorite by voters. Check out his amazing photo-observation at iNaturalist Vermont. And check out the map of Merlin sightings on iNaturalist Vermont and on Vermont eBird. The Vermont Breeding Bird Atlas, a project of the Vermont Atlas of Life, found that Merlins expanded their range in Vermont drastically from the first atlas 30 years ago to the second atlas just recently finished.
