Prairie Falcon or Merlin?

Recommended Posts

Alongside the road in a wetland and a distance away in the Willamette Valley, Portland Oregon

I thought it was a Harrier due to the size which is much smaller as a hawk but bigger as a Kestrel.
Editing the photo, I realized it wasn't. With my research on Allaboutbirds.com, it looks like either a Prairie Falcon or a female Merlin?
Of course I can cry in my soup because big lens and all, the photo is not as crisp as I would have liked.
