Photography : Birds : Pensive Merlin

This merlin looks contemplative and calm in spite of sitting in a bustling nature store in Las Cruces. This was a special event where the volunteers of the bird conservation group, Hawks Aloft, brought a few of their rescue raptors down from Albuquerque. All of these birds suffered injuries that would make it impossible to release them back into the wild, so they serve as ambassadors for the conservation cause.
