I must admit, it gets a bit daunting to post pictures , Seeing the great photos you fellows are posting,
but your support is definately encouraging.
This is another shot from my trip to the prairies this summer.
It's interesting to see the difference between the Pacific and the Prairie Merlin.

I get comments on how dark the Pacific Coastal Merlin is.

Here is a recent photo!

Another Pacific one from a few weeks ago. Definitely less orange in the face.
