    Details: !!!!!!! First seen flying overhead while I was in the stream catching damselflies; it appeared something like a giant pale mattress flapping through the canopy. We ran up the hill where Amanda found it perched in the open, with many toucans and oropendolas screaming. I ran to get the others and used Shawn's phone to digi-bin a few pictures which I will upload when I have a better connection. Unmistakeable: enormous, hulking, tall, basically human-sized raptor with extremely broad wings. I couldn't see much of the pattern of the underwings except that they were mostly pale with some dark barring. The head was gray, paler around the nape, with dark, forward-facing eyes, a monstrous gray bill, and with several long, dark, floppy crest feathers, sometimes held vertically. Distinct black chest band (with some white mottling) and mostly white underparts, with some fine barring mostly around the feathered tarsi. The upperparts were mostly dark mottled gray but with a mix of brownish mottled coverts and tertials. The tail was somewhat long, with 2-3 thick black and gray bands. The feet were ridiculously thick and yellow, with large dark talons. After several minutes of close observation in excellent light it flew off to the west.
