S Thailand raptor id help pls (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
Hi, is it possible to id this raptor from these admittedly poor photos. In flight it did seemed barred like a sparrowhawk, but seemed large for one of those. They were taken on December 29 at about 11 am outside of Hat Yai Thailand, near the edge of one of the large inland lakes in Songkhla province.
Thank you in advance

Used to be well known! 😎
It’s an Oriental Honey Buzzard, Steve.

(Perfectly adequate photos for purposes of ID btw! πŸ™‚)
