Megaceryle alcyon and Falco columbarius
Need help confirming the Merlin?
These two sat on same branch for a few minutes the kingfisher chittering at the merlin... finally the Kingfisher took off and the Merlin flew after him but returned and sat for a long time in the sun... a lazy August day. The snag was not far behind where I sit for observations. I am not sure this is a merlin can someone confirm?
