Mon. - Rough legged Hawk hovering over Bromley (Peru)

Tues - Over Bromley Mt. - a large bird with white underside and black tips 
on wings.  My first thought was Ring-bill Gull which have been moving 
through, but this bird was soaring and circling.  When it banked, the top 
side was brownish.   Alas, I forgot to take my binos on the slopes, but my 
guess was a white, Red-tail Hawk.  Perhaps the bird that has been seen this 
winter in Dorset.   Any other ideas?

Later that day at my home in E. Dorset...  TV and 2 'flap, flap, soar' 
birds.  Even though I did get binos on these guys, the sky was still bright 
and the birds were distant, but 'jiz' gave me heavy bodied accipiters - not 
sharpie or coopers of which I have seen many.  I'm not sure I have ever IDed 
a Goshawk in flight, but that was my guess.

Wed.., a  raptor swooped in our yard and perched in tree top long enough for 
me to get 'gray bird, face mark, long tail'...  definite male Goshawk!
