Any idea what this one is? It was perched by the side of the road in Khao Yai.

D5 and 80-400. I keep trying to wean myself to the D500 for the reach advantage with birds but it misses focus more than it hits focus due the size of the focus points.

I ain't no birder, so maybe I should not mangle in the discussion, but could this potentially be a juvenile Crested Serpent Eagle? The Yellow patch between bill and eye reminds me more of that. I am not sure but thought this might not be present in the Changeable Hawk-eagle...

But if I am wrong, hopefully you can learn me which details to look at to distinguish these.

No need to be ashamed, haha. I also sometimes give id's on automatic pilot, and then it can happen that a small detail is overlooked.
