I know the picture quality is poor, but in the rain and through the back window, that is as good as I could get without scaring it away.  Any idea what this bird is?  It was about 8 to 9 inches tall as it was perched on my tree this am.

Hi Mark,

I don't think necessarily that your hawk is young, just small. In fact, from what I can see in the pics, I *think* it is an adult Sharp-shinned Hawk. Check that out in your guide and let's also see what others say.

I was wondering if it might be a Merlin?

The long tail and short wings mean it's not a Merlin.  I'm with Denis too.  

My impression is the same as that of Denis.
