They are the favorite of many hawkwatcher’s due to their speed and colors.10-14 inches. A medium, jay-sized falcon with a largish head & pointed wings. in flight, the Merlin appears relatively dark overall, Adult males are slate-blue above; females are brown.

Breeds east from Alaska throughout Cananda and South to Nova Scotia; also Montana, and Wyoming. An uncommon winter resident along both U.S. coasts and in the southern U.S.

VOICE similar to the American Kestrel but lower pitched and harsher

My goal is to get my name out there among the vast ocean of Natural photographers. To be known for my skill with a Point & Shoot~

My images are not photo shopped. They have only been adjusted with basic sharpening, contrasting & saturation techniques. I believe that in order to appreciate Nature, you have to capture it as it is, naturally.
