This one is a stamper! Judging by the wire, it's not a big one... It must be an immature . It doesn't match the smaller hawks in my book.

thanks for the reply. I have , " Eastern Birds", but I couldn't make a firm decision on an identification. Sam

I think this is a merlin (pigeon hawk). Anyone else have an opinion what it might be?

That is a good suggestion, Michelle!!! I will enter that name. Thanks. Sam
