I think that this is simply a female brookei that didn┤t get enough food during the critical time of growing. That may happen with every species or subspecies. Some years ago I bred a pure female peales weighing 920 grams when hard-penned. I was so happy about that monster male till I got the DNA results....
In the meantime she already laid eggs witht the new owner and her offspring are good sized.

I don't know much about CITES documentation...but...if you have it and it says the bird is a female...why doesn't it give the species of the bird???

Yesterday, the bird's fying weight was 771 grams (1 lb 11,3 oz). I'm still bring the bird's weight up until it stops responding to the lure.

Not yet introduced to games, so not sure what her hunting weight will be.

As for the CITES document, on the cell named " scientific name of species", one can read "Falco Peregrinus". That entry is not sufficient to know from which sub-species the bird belongs too.

From a falconer around me who flew Brookeis, he thinks the bird is a Peregrinus hybrid with definately some brookei inside.

He told me that the matter of distinguinsing hybrid brookeis is difficult as there are 2 types of brookeis: one located in the northen of Spain and another one in the south of Spain.

The former one heavier and the latter lighter.

To make things even more complicated, and as on can expect, both of these 2 types of brookei can interbred !!!

So, virtually impossible to guess what the flying/ hunting weight of my hybrid bird will be.

A peregrine is a peregrine, it's what you do with it that counts.

I agree with you, Falcons Loire.
I'm just curious and eager to know when she stops being responsive.

Will let you know in due time.

Got the DNA test result, my bird is definately a female.

FYI: I got the test performed by : www.sexadodeaves.com

Very quick to get the test result: 7 calendar days;
Very cheap: 4,5 euros.

I've used them for dna with finches in the past. Excellent service and accurate.

It looks that she reponds very well to the lure at 1 lb 10,2 oz

While at 1 lb 10,9 oz, she takes her time to go to the lure, flying around me for 1-2 mn before coming to the lure but also sometimes to fly away.
