That Merlin Falcon actually has a more benign look to him. Maybe that's why it's named for the wizard?

Oh, so dry! But seeing a small critter running on the ground must be easier that way. - Margy said...

Beautiful birds of prey!

Such grand birds to watch both in flight and at rest! Amazing view of a "sad" landscape in the last photo!

God bless you!

That merlin falcon looks as if it is only a baby. Very cute!

Hey I'm impressed by those raptors Kay, with my favourite Merlin too. Sorry about the partridge but that's the way it is around here, shooting is a way of life for some, luckily a minority even though they have a voice louder than their numbers - politicians! Hope Richard is feeling better quite soon.

Hope all is well with you and Dick and Lindy.
