Hi everyone,

I was quite fortunate to have this Merlin stay put for a nice, close photo.  Much less timid than those darn Kestrals.  I shot from inside my car and she was on this sign about 0.5 miles from the gate to Confluence SP.  Follow link to photograph.

I'm calling this an adult female.  I would be interesting to hear what you experts think about the subspecies designation of this one.
