what is this bird

I am no expert by far,,, but my immediate thought when I first saw the photo, was that it looked like a peregrine falcon. These are used for hunting and often chosen as a pet by some people. The wings may be clipped intentionally , as I have read this keeps them from straying too far from it's owners home.
hope this helps, someone may be looking for their bird
