Stuck inside with the fresh snow and pandemic, so I am going thru some pictures I took in Spring 2018. This image was taken 17 June 2018 in the Firerock campground, beside Elkwater Lake, Cyprus Hills, Alberta. I had labelled it as a kestrel, but now looking back thru I think it is either a juvenile sharp-shinned hawk or a merlin. I favor merlin from the lack of yellow in the eye.
