Raptor in Belize, March 2017

Anyone able to confirm if the bird in the photos is a Grey-Headed Kite, light morph (Leptodon cayanensis)? Sorry for the quality of the photos. Taken today in Blue Hole Natiobnal Park, Cayo, Belize.

Looks good for Grey-headed Kite to me.

Nice sighting. If you're in Belize now, have an iPhone and a good internet connection, maybe you want to download the Belize bird list. I'd be happy to get your feedback on it, while you're using it in the field.
