Photographed at the Consumnes River Preserve, thought it might be a Merlin, but am confused by the tail feathers. Ideas? Thank you, Leslie

Superb image, Leslie. Agree with the ID of one of 'your' hawks by the above learned gentlefolk. If you ever do get a shot of a merlin from this angle, so pin-sharp . . . be sure to keep the copyright. Cracking pic

Thanks all! Excited to add a Swainson's Hawk to the collection. I am getting better and better at my photography, now need to work on identification! Thanks for your help.
