Another overhead raptor near Dalat, Vietnam 1 Dec ' 19

These have been cropped and lightened to make ID more likely. Either an accipiter of accipiter-like bird. B (:

A soaring raptor near Dalat, Vietnam, 1 Dec '19.

Four shots of a raptor overhead. Cropped and lightened in an attempt to make field marks more visible.

I suspect this is a Jerdon's Baza but with little experience of SE Asian raptors, am uncertain.

Thanks, that was one that got strong consideration but ruled out because I couldn't detect blue in the tail. Imagine such traits are in flux based on age and season.

Thanks again...Steve

Cuc Phuong Natl Park 2 weeks past (21 Nov '19)

Bounced this one with Richard Craik and he 'agreed' with my guess of a sub-adult (bird-of-the-year?) male Japanese Thrush. This bird was quite agro chasing shamas and fulvettas while monopolizing the...
