Any Ideas?

Hi folks,

Took this picture today from around 50m - looks like a juvenile raptor (hooked beak) but I don't know what type of bird it is.  Can anyone identify it?

It's a Dollarbird.

Hi Bones. Just a tip if you're seeking i.d.s of birds: post the location of your sighting (e.g., neighbour's garden, Spring Hill, Goochera Plains Tas.) as this will indicate whether the bird is within its normal range & therefore aid in identification.
