It is very fuzzy, but clear enough that you can see it is *not* a Peregrine. I would guess Saker from the eyestripe. It was at a display, was it not?
Definitely not falco cherrug (saker)..that is an awful guess, i would advise you not to attempt to identify any falcons at all, ever...lol
its a peregrine lanner maybe 3/4 pere/lanner given how stocky it is
I AM BIRD MAN
I agree with Urophora that this isn't a Peregrine, but I also don't think that it is a Saker (Sakers are browner above with a longer tail).
I don't really think that it will be possible to ID this bird from the photo, other than to say that it is a Falcon - one major problem is that falconers birds are often hybrids between two species.
If this bird isn't a hybrid (and I guess that only the breeder will know that for certain), my suggestion would be Barbary Falcon, Falco (peregrinus) pelegrinoides, which is similar to Peregrine (and sometimes considered to be a subspecies) but has the rufous/buff that this bird shows on the head. This isn't much more than a guess though!
For the best chance of getting a proper ID of falconers birds always try and ask the owners!
wings far to long for a barbary falcon
I agree with RoyW that this doesn't appear to be a saker, on structure more than anything, and it may very well be a Barbary falcon, but it doesn't look too far off a peregrine on structure to me, either.
On the few occasions I have seen Barbary falcon, I always thought they looked (a little!) slighter than peregrine. This bird looks pretty 'broad in the beam' to me (if that makes any sense at all?). Some peregrine races can show quite bit of rufous in the plumage about the head and breast and as RoyW properly says, â€˜who knows' with falconer's birds. I suspect his wise final words are the compass to steer by, on this subject.
indeed barbary falcons are slighter, the "broard in the bream" reveals its pergrine blood, the head its lanner blood..as some one who owns 2 pergrine lanners i woud say peregrine lanner and a very well built one at that
This looks like an Indian lagger falcon to me (Falco jugger), but I can't rule out lagger or lanner hybrid with peregrine. Laggers are more often kept by falconers than lanners. Sometimes they're called luggers.
From the colours in its head I'd say Falco biarmicus ...but I think it's out of its distribution area... so I think the most likely is, indeed, peregrinus...
bird is clearly to stocky
wise_as_the_wind: You may well be correct that the bird in the photograph is a Peregrine x Lanner cross, you may even be correct that it is 3/4 Peregrine. Is it really necessary to 'put down' the suggestions made by others in the way that you have though - especially as most were clearly stated as being guesses?
There's nothing wrong with giving reasons why you disagree with previous ID suggestions (and I accept that a Barbary Falcon should appear less bulky), but try not to word it it a way that may put people off giving suggestions in the future!
I notice that you haven't said that it is definitely a Peregrine x Lanner cross - can you be certain of that? If you are certain what makes it definitely that?
