Bob,

Fabulous, colorful, dead-sharp and well-timed photography!

Handsome but Hardly concerned about manners!

What beautiful and majestic horror!

But perhaps Angel Gabriel is a rodent and that bird is going on the fast elevevator down to the sub-basement in Dante’s Inferno”!

This is a huge challenge to all all-loving God!

Asher

Immature Merlins are also brown.

IDK but a brown Merlin isn't necessarily female. Could be an immature male.
