I get a Wood duck feeling from it, maybe moult or juvenile given faint markings/ no tuft? We get escapees in the UK, I thought I'd heard similar reports in Sweden.

Costa Rica - Hawks

Hello,

I visited Costa Rica in March 2019. Enthusiastically photographing every distant soaring dot, I've got some pretty ropey hawk images I'd really appreciate some help with identifying.

Thanks!
