    Sometimes you just get lucky! She settled about 25 mtrs fom me to devour a small bird she had taken. I assumed it was a Kestrel at first, but the white barring on the tail and the white collar and nape -I think - confirms a female merlin.

    Only the second time that I've seen one of these from my back deck. They sure don't give you much time to snap the picture as they fly past. The gray sky didn't help much either.
