Calidus? (E Romania) (1 Viewer)

Hippolais

Luca Boscain
Peregrine Falcon photographed in the Danube delta the 21.03.15: the thin mustache made me think to a Siberian individual of the ssp. calidus, but I' m not totally convinced by the lack of a lot of white on the head... but it seems to be a subadult, so the game become possibly a bit harder... any opinion??

first: calidus is not identifiable in the field
second: sometimes you call very light Peregrines 'northern type'
third: this one is well within F.p.peregrinus variation
