It looks like a merlin to me as well.  Sad that it died, though. I wonder what happened to it.

No obvious signs of trauma, no scattering of feathers, just lying in the yard.

It's definitely not a Kestrel. I think it's a Merlin. I've attached a pic of a Merlin. What d'ya think!?

I think the Merlin may well be it.  Thanks MAK!  Wish I could have photographed this one live.

Could you post its face..might be easier to ID.

I knew someone would ask for a face photo as soon as I uploaded the others, but I had to go out and just got back.  My camera gives too much color intensity with flash, and throws in some blue hue that is not really there, but these may be useful.  This has to be an adult - way too late in the year for young birds.  Kestrel?  I've never seen one around here (Southeast Alabama).  It's like it just fell out of the sky.

Fledgling Osprey is flying well but staying close to home. Kiting in the breeze, a quick trip around town, and a nice safe return.

May have to let the video run through to the end, then replay for it to run smoothly.

WOW!.....In a state where the family pet is routinely chained in the back yard or hauled unrestrained in the open bed of a pickup, an Alabama woman was sentenced to 12 years in prison for animal cruelty!

BUT.......a deal with the prosecution whittled her jail time down to 10 months!

After a year or more of twisting in the wind and pointing anywhere but the nest, the cam was realigned some months ago.  This cam is easily affected by weather - we'll hope that it lasts the season.
