Looks like some sort of harrier to me, but I dunno.

she called it an eagle so i imagine it might be somewhat big.

Mike, we'll see what others say. you might be right. no telling over there.

Its a Kite. Not sure if its a Black Kite or not, I'd have to check the distribution. Pretty sure that it is though. (Just Googled Black Kite range, it fits)

yup. it does fit. scavenger, in japan, white bar on under wings, dark feathers with some light barring. kind of a dirty looking bird. the feral pigeon of the raptor world.

I was going to say black kite too but Pete beat me to it. Years ago I actually flew one, he was 30 years old!
