Merlin, Rondeau Bay, Sept 3, 2016

Spotted this merlin having a bath on a weed mat in Rondeau Bay the other day.
Very enthusiastic.

Falco columbarius

Merlin pairs have been seen teaming up to hunt large flocks of waxwings: one Merlin flushes the flock by attacking from below; the other comes in moments later to take advantage of the confusion.
