Falcon ID Needed At Cute Overload--STAT!

Okay, I need the help from my readers overseas. There's an adorable falcon photo over at Cute Overload and no one knows the ID. I'm thinking Common Kestrel (or Falco tinnunculus) but this is not a falcon I see every day. Can anyone else id it? If not, just enjoy the cute photo!

Oh, and brace yourselves for some hot hooded merganser action coming in the next 12 hours. I got some killer shots this morning!
