No idea but it's surely a great capture. His short beak and big black eyes looks so beautiful.

I'd never know, but it's a good shot!

Morning Herb, nice detailed image of this bird, I went to my, Birds of North America, by the Smithsonian Institution, authored by Fred J. Alsop. According to this book it closely resembles a Female Northern Harrier. The Male is featured, with much more detail, with a smaller insert of the Female. Mind you it's not a positive ID, but it might point you in the right direction...

Very nice. Don't you love it when they perch on a nicely arched branch.

Nice shot Herb. It looks to me to be a (Pacific) Merlin.

he's a handsome devil what ever he is.

Whatever he is, he looks great against that cornflower blue sky!

It must be a Kestrel of some type by the beak. Nice shot

I don't know, but judging by the feathers hanging from his talons I'd say that someone had a short acquaintance...

Think his name is Henry.
