No, this is not a Merlin, it is a Kestrel. Both smaller falcons. Sorry if I confused anyone

Phylum: Chordata
Class: Aves

Falco

Hope I got it right this time :-)

Beautiful bird. I was lucky enough to capture a picture or two of a Merlin a couple of weeks back. Thanks for sharing those.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year,

Steve
