Izzi is a juvenile Peregrine falcon! It is not certain that he hunted himself. It is most likely a handover from one of the parents!

Looks like a Peregrine Falcon. They strike at staggering speeds to the point their prey dies on impact from strike. Trust me that parrots had a quick death. I lived in an area growing up where Peregrines would roost. I would find all types of bird legs in our back yard. And so I caught an excellent view of one of the Peregrines striking a pigeon. All I seen was a feathers like it was a pillow fight in mid-air. The Peregrine took off without landing to the ground with its prey. This happened in less than 30 seconds.
