1. Not sure what this is - I don't think it's a Shikra, as it has neither the heavy vertical streaks of a juvenile or the fine horizontal barring of an adult female. I'm not sure it's an accipiter at all. Anyone?
2. Indian Spotted Eagle? Not sure the gape is long enough though.
3. Yes, Black-winged Kite - has the black wedges on the wing of ssp. vociferus
4. Looks like imm. Eastern Imperial Eagle
5. Zitting Cisticola?

1. I don’t see anything speaking against Shikra but no experience with other Indian Accipiter
2. yellow iris, long tail, barring suggest immature EIE to me
3. agree
4. plain coverts and wing shape look Tawny to me
5. Pipit?

For no. 2, I was influenced by this image, and by a few others showing birds with a similarly diamond-shaped tail:

https://www.hbw.com/ibc/species/indi...clanga-hastata (1 of 7)

I'm not seeing a yellow iris.

Would this be a subadult then? It doesn't have the "gap" in the flight feathers of juv. EIE.

Re no.4, I'm sure you're right. I forgot that the underwing pattern of pale Tawny is rather similar to juv. EIE. Head size and shape and the relatively slim wings and body are better for Tawny.
