Friday's Foto

Merlins are one of two small falcon species found around NYC in the winter. Sometimes referred to as the "Pigeon Hawk", their primary prey is small birds, which they catch on the wing. In Brooklyn, they can usually be found at the edges of Prospect Park's and Green-Wood Cemetery's fields and meadows.

Nice shot, Rob. Love the colors here, with that low winter sun lighting this beauty up.
