30th Nov.1997 "Falco peregrinus pealei"? :photo by Kakumura

We found "strange Peregrin Falcon" at Toshima-shinden. We seemed this bird is more blachish than F.p.japonensis[Hayabusa]. We think it may be Falco peregrinus pealei[Oohayabusa]. But we have few information about F.p.pealei. Would you teach us about it?

It is rare. In Shiokawa tidalflat it was observed only two times, at 12th Sep.1988 and 14th Sep.1986. It is usually recorded at Autumn and "juvenile". So we have no chance to see"adult". It was pleased us that it was adult winter plumage.
