This Flicker was being chased by a male Merlin which was visiting our area on October 11th, 1997. The Merlin was just inches behind the twisting and turning Flicker, but the Flicker prevailed. The Merlin tried a few more times over a 15 minute period to get a Flicker, but never succeeded. Recorded at Tavasci Marsh [Arizona] 10/10/97.
