Merlin or Peregrine Falcon?

Recommended Posts

Leaning towards Peregrine as it looked larger than Merlins in the area plus the dark face with kinda a sideburn?  It was on a grain elevator.  This raptor on one side and lots of pigeons on the other. Help appreciated. Thanks.

Definitely young Peregrine. Like you were saying, it's far too bulky to be a Merlin, it has a very strong mustache stripe, and has a large beak.
