Looks like a Merlin to me. I saw my first last week eating a meal on the
osprey nest at Gulf Beach in Milford. I was thrilled!

Looking for some ID help on this raptor at Sherwood Island. My first
thought was that it's a sharpie or coopers, but now thinking maybe merlin.
Any thoughts? Photo take at Sherwood Island, Westport, 3/3/12
