BBY021 :: Falco columbarius

Merlins. This pair of small birds of prey sat in a dead tree where I saw them. The tree has since fallen.

At first I wondered if these birds were juvenile Peregrine falcons. I’m not sure if there’s a chance that two juveniles would be hanging out together – maybe a birder could weigh in on this.

Art by Nelson Spies, February 26 2023. Acrylic on canvas panel (colours warmed from original). Specimens recorded July 24, 2020, 19:12 at to the path junction next to the Burnaby wildlife rescue.
