Merlin in Yamhill County, Oregon

This adult Merlin was watching a stretch of ditch and road shoulder near the McMinnville Airport today. I was not able to see the front of the bird, which means I'm not sure what subspecies this might be. Perhaps there is a way to determine that from this view. (?) With that pale throat could it be a F.c. Richardsoni, a Prairie Merlin.
