    Is that a Merlin in the photo? I always have trouble making a positive identification.

    It’s a Cooper’s or sharp-shinned. Although Cooper’s is more common around here, I’m going to go with sharpie. The squared tailed, the head size relative to body, the position of the eyes, and most of all, the body shape all say sharpie to me.

Sorry, comment time is over.
