I need help for ID. Seen in Kruger December 2014.

Could it be a Common buzzard or a lesser spotted Eagle?
Thanks in advance
Jaffles

Looks like a juvenile yellow-billed kite to me.

Gorgeous!

@ Johann: thank you so much for your help! I was a little bit irritated about the colour of the eyes.

@Hilda: Thank you for your kind comment!


Greetings from Germany
Claudia

Hi, Could this be a Lanner Falcon? Taken near Rondevlei Ebb and Flow. Thanks By the way, this image was posted via the new suggested system using the attachment add function, this will not post an image larger then 500x500

Tnx for your attempt Anne-Marie. After having a good look at this image and one other one , I am fairly certain that my image is a Lanner Falcon.

Do you agree that this is a Juv Gabar Goshawk seen in Kruger in Feb?
I am always a bit confused between that and a Dark Chanting Goshawk? :doh:
