Hawk ID - Trinidad

Saw 2 White Hawks recently in the same vicinity and initially assumed the 2 hawks seen today were the same birds. When looking on my computer, these are different birds.

I'd go for juvenile light morph Short-tailed Hawk. Plumage and leg color fit.

I agree wing shape is better for Short-tailed H
