Wordless Wednesday with Linky - Merlin - September 25, 2013


The other day, while working at the computer in my bedroom, I got such a surprise.  Right outside my window landed a Merlin - a pigeon hawk (falco columbarius - part of the falcon family).  I have shared pictures of a Merlin before, but never this close up.  He was too busy looking for breakfast than to worry about someone taking his picture on the other side of the glass.



 Love that do!


 He was attentively looking for a tasty morsel.


 Those are some claws!
This last picture was taken right before he took off and caught something, probably a little bird, that we could just barely see out the window.

    1. We were lucky. He just didn't notice us on the other side of the window. The camera was only around three ft away from him.
