thank you for pictures and comments , as allways quite interesting ,
a few remarks romania also has a large population of migrant peregrinus , from finland , kola peninsula( russia) and a few other places as well.
that makes sometimes difficult to identify falcons in the field.
the pictures from kazakstan , the young peregrine flying off with prey is indiginous from there as the altai region as well as all the region ( from lake issyl koul roughly , lake balkash etc ... it's basically european alps looking
and there are plenty of peregrines breeding there pretty much calidus looking but actually peregrinus sorry not to put pictures now as I'lm not at home where my data are will publish them tonight then just one here ( sad one but interesting enough by the size and colour of the falcon this was taken in summer beginning august 2009 in Kosh-Agach.altai.

nice one isn't it ?
Concerning food and hunting , interesting work , in the european studies I have been reading male & females tend to hunt same preys though in breeding time males tend to bring smaller preys like swifts and turdids than femalesbut pigeons and starlings are brought by both parents .

Thanks for an additional info!

I'm not the fan of an immature peregrine plumage coloration, adult birds look amazing, but that is one nice looking immature bird.

And to be honest, it didn't look like a peregrine (to me the head is a give away), but I tend to take the word of the more experienced falconres over personal judgement.
In other words, I would be fooled

Here is one very pale bird: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rtZ9L2PaiXU

Hope you like it!
