The merlin, once known as the pigeon hawk, is from the Northern Hemisphere with species among North America and Eurasia. It is a bird of prey and specializes in hunting smaller birds like sparrows or quail. It has been known for centuries as a bird used in falconry, which is a form of hunting using birds of prey.
Sometimes merlins get so adapted to living in the city that the undergo migration.
