Thanks, Dick. I knew I didn't need to fuss over which bird was which. I'd be wrong anyway. Thanks for your expert help and interest!

This is a tough one to identify. I've down-loaded it and photoshoped it to expand, brighten and clean up the image. Surely it's a raptor from the curved beak and the claws that become apparent in the process. Also, there appears to be a feather crest at the top of the head. My guess is that it could be a Martial Eagle, because of the crest, yellow feet, and the appearance of black white speckling on the chest as lighten the black silhouette.
