Merlin Falcon photographed in Desert Hills
DESERT HILLS – Local photographer Jim Simmons photographed a Merlin Falcon in Desert Hills a few weeks ago. This raptor is not especially common in Arizona and only winters here.
After photographing the Merlin Falcon, photographer Simmons contacted the Arizona Game and Fish Department to help identify the bird. Simmons also reached out to The Foothills Focus, offering the fascinating photos for printing. He noted that he just happened to notice the Merlin Falcon and was able to photograph it.
