Committee's view
Background
Photos available, and we reject this record as the dark and light tailbands are within acceptable variation for Japanese Sparrowhawk. In in fact, they don't even look equal enough for a typical Besra. One of the photos, which shows some sections of the throat, does not show any distinct mesial stripe which on a Besra should be evident at the angle presented.
Verdict Not accepted (Verifiable)
