This was taken today at Ft. Desoto State Park in St. Petersburg, FL.  I was thinking juvenile Peregrine Falcon, but have only seen one and it was an adult.  I was fooled once and it was a Merlin, but this looked too large to be a Merlin.

Looks like a Merlin, sorry.  It's not bulky enough for a Peregrine -- notice how large its eyes are compared to its head and its small beak.  And the tail and face patterns aren't quite right for a Peregrine.
