This was only my second time photographing one of these beautiful little falcons.

This particular Merlin was photographed at a bird feeding station, at Shirley's Bay in Ottawa, that is maintained by bird lovers. The location is visited regularly by birders and bird photographers as well as by this Merlin.

Unfortunately my visits there have never seemed to match that of this falcon that is until this past Thursday. It would have been nice to get a photo in the sun but I did the best that I could with what I was offered.
