I took this photo at Middle Island in Miramichi July 14th 2009. I'm quite sure it is a baby hawk, But still not sure of the Bird's  proper ID.

HI Frank,

My guess would be the chick of a Merlin (medium-sized Falcon).

I agree Denis. The timing [July 14th] seems good for Merlin.

Great photos, Frank. I've never seen such a young one before.

I agree, Merlin.  Even at this young age the yellow cere, (fleshy area at the base of the beak) is showing.  Do you know the outcome?  

Dwayne, People  working at middle island that summer were doing their best to protect the chick, But i don't

know the outcome.

Neat , thanks for sharing !
