Merlin falcon captured on traffic camera in Calgary

Traffic cameras in Montreal recently caught images of a snowy owl in flight, winning lots of internet love in the process.

And now, traffic cameras in Calgary were rolling as a little falcon, most certainly a Merlin, according to bird nerds, took a pit stop.

The city’s transportation department posted the bird’s 10-second pause this week on Twitter predictably sending bird lovers a twitter. Because. Well, just look. So cute.


And just like that, the Merlin was gone.
