Dark Merlin near Canon City

I saw this rather dark Merlin at my friend's farm near Canon City late this afternoon when the light was poor. It appeared to have dark brown back and light malar marking like a female or immature Taiga Merlin. However, most Merlin in Colorado are from the lighter race of Prairie Merlins. I will check more pics tomorrow. SeEtta
