Hi Paul my eyes did not study your photo enough when I first saw this but this is not the PRFA but a Merlin.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Yeah, it is, isn't it? No moustaches, for example. Too bad about that.

The PRFA continues today and was seen in the tree in middle of the field on the west side of McKechnie Rd, north of Connecting Rd. The Harlan's RTHA that was first found by Mike Tabak and who has been in the area as well for the winter also continues.

Cheers,
Mel
