adaptation

The Australian subspecies of peregrine, “macropus”, is described as being named thus for its large feet. No source I’ve read, though, says plainly that this peregrine’s feet are bigger than those of all other peregrines worldwide. 

Does anyone know, are the feet of “macropus” actually bigger than all other peregrines’? – & If so, what could the Australian peregrine have adapted to by evolving such big feet?
Thanks for your thoughts.
