For future arguments:
Search for a bird by entering name, description, and keywords, All About Birds, Cornell Lab of Ornithology

Haven't tried this.

It is without a doubt in the genus Falco (falcons, merlins, kestrels, hobbies) due to the sharply contrasting, dark head cowl and huge eyes relative to head size. It's not even in the same avian order as Golden Eagle (Accipitriformes) (Falconiformes for falcons). The barring on the belly and the size of the bill suggest Peregrine (Falco peregrinus. However, the rusty colour on the undersides is very unusual except for the subspecies F. p. peregrinator (Indian subcontinent to southeast China). But even in that subspecies the upper breast and throat should be white. The same goes for Australian Hobby F. longipennis. Perhaps the colour in the photo was thrown off by ambient light or post-processing.
An educated response this is, Pete !
I have to agree that this falcon has a bit of "unusual" colours but I have settled for a peregrine ... who knows? Maybe this was taken at a zoo with different sub-species of that "same" bird ??

The throat isn't white because that's a juvenile peregrine. I'm a bit of a raptor fan, though typically more eagles and buzzards than the smaller birds.

On another note, maybe it's a Millennial Falcon...
Sci-Fi space ship jokes aside, if it's still living with its parents then it's probably a millenial.
