Merlin

Merlin (Falco columbarius) perched outside its nest in a spruce tree in the southwest suburbs of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Merlins make use of old magpie nests that have collapsed and been flattened out. There is a high population of magpies nesting in the city proper so the supply of available nests is quite steady.
