Inspired by "Eagle Eye" Lynn H, Andrew Lorimer, Rob Roy, Klaus Girk, Kevin J. Woolley, John Linton and all the JPGers who admire a bird in flight shot.

The Bird ID site is back online and, overnight I got 3 confirmations. This is a Grey-faced Buzzard Eagle (Butastur indicus). If you ever get stumped on a bird's ID, check out birdforum.net ; great crowd to know !

    Swainsons are in Argentina right now wintering, so I am thinking from the markings it could be a Broad Winged Hawk. Beautiful capture.
