More Broad-winged Hawk pics

The top pic shows nicely the rufous brown barring on the leg feathers on this bird. Also seen are the mostly whitish undertail coverts. Other than the light superciliary line (seen best by clicking on pic to enlarge it) above the eye, the hawk appears to have adult plumage. I am wondering if this hawk is in transition to Basic I plumage. SeEtta
