Committee's view
Background
Two photos of the bird published on the Bird Ecology Study Group website, with texts (and comments) stating that it is a Besra, but without ID reasons. The strongly feathered undertail coverts and crest visible in the second photo point to a Crested Goshawk instead.
Verdict Not accepted (Verifiable)
