Can someone ID this raptor. Thanks
Some said it is Crested honey buzzard, Peregrine Falcon or Oriental-honey buzzard ?

It is most definitely not a falcon, and the orbital ridges and feathered tarsi (unless both are photo artifacts, can sometimes be hard to tell), along with the tail pattern, should exclude Oriental Honey Buzzard (same species as Crested Honey Buzzard). It looks like some kind of hawk-eagle.
Edit: after looking it up, Changeable Hawk-eagle seems to be the likeliest candidate.
