My 100th species for the Year

On December 4th I recorded my 100th local bird species for the year.  It happened as I was travelling in the eastern parish of St. Philip and noticed two small Raptors.  At first glance, I thought that they were Peregrine Falcons but the smallness in size led me to believe that Merlins were the better bet.  I was able to take a few photographs which were used to give a positive ID.  So, my 100th bird for 2015 is a Merlin.
