Imm

Small buteo with near immaculate white underwing coverts and broadly black bordered trailing edge of underwing; tail with alternating light and dark bands of about equal width; reddish-brown barring on sides but underparts otherwise largely pale making darker head stand out as 'hooded' as viewed in flight from below. Viewed in good light as in flapped I level flight approaching but well to side; quickly lost sight behind trees. Flight silhouette with more pointed wings and longer tail than RSHA (2 imm RSHAs present) - to me, an unfamiliar shape that immediately grabbed my attention. Very faint, fine darker bars crossing flight feathers. Would have liked more looks, but details rule out RSHA and Accipiters.
