I would think this bird was hanging around waiting for a House Sparrow
rather than a pigeon (with all due respect to those who wince when a sparrow
gets nailed by a raptor). I am thinking of the size ratio. The Merlins out
here on the coast feed on the various sparrows (though there are fewer House
Sparrows out here; we only have a McDonalds), finches and smaller

Hi Tweets:
This afternoon there was a Merlin at Pike Place Market........ I figure
this bird probably snacks on the pigeons down there.
