falcon i believe

Not knowing where the bird was seen makes it hard. The dark line through the eye makes me think either Prairie Falcon or Merlin.

Merlin?
by: Jason

I think this could be a merlin. It also could be an american kestrel. I believe it to be a merlin though. They are both members of the falcon family.
