From first of october and since 4 years ago there is a very , very lucky french man that has this guest for the entire winter

the question was: is it a calidus or a peregrinus from northscandinavia , I think it is a calidus .
if any of you has experience with tundrius , how close does it looks

I see nothing unusual in the bird.

Here comes the italian one
Before it , the peregrine in sŔte just sleep there every night gorgeous isn't it , what about having breakfast apigeon for him , a croissant for you ..

Http://xa.yimg.com/kq/groups/4618903...cks%202001.pdf

have a look at that article on peregrine falcon raising herring gulls
by the way it shows also how vulnerable are peregrine chicken raised in cliffs among sea gulls.
another interesting thing is that the red spot on gulls that induce chicken to feed is not so important as it looks , chicken can readily adapt to other paterns should the need be.

I found the article about the partial rearing of the herring gulls by peregrines very interesting. I wonder how often this has actually occurred. are there any other threads relating to these abnormal occurrences in the wild on here? or indeed in captivity, whats the most obscure "false clutch" or replacement clutch, or unnatural rearing? i've heard of harris's rearing all sorts...
