This is juvenile of ordinary common black hawk. There are no mangrove black hawk in Costa Rica. The old 'mangrove black hawk' in the country are just small normal common black hawk.
Real mangrove black hawk is a race of common black hawk and only distributed in southeast Panama (Darien), Coiba island and Pacific coast of South America.
