Really, really nice. He looks like the North American Merlin! And apparently it's a close cousin. Wonderful shot!!!

Great shot. As earlier mentioned sharp and beautiful blurred background. I also like the framing or cropping of the image.

Beautiful shot, looks like a juvenille Red-Shouldered Hawk or a Cooper's Hawk
