Well, not easy from the quality of the pics, BUT....

I would venture that the first one (not the vulture) is a "true" eagle, i.e. it has fully feathered legs. The general impression is of a small slightly built, uniformly coloured eagle and the hint of a crest might point to Wahlberg's Eagle.

The bird in the last pic has got bare lower legs and is therefore not a "true" eagle, and could be one of a long list including buzzards, kites, snake eagles, harrier-hawk, etc. The general shape (longish, pointed (?) tail) and posture points me maybe towards Yellow-billed Kite.

Thanks, always been a tricky subject to me. Gordon suggested I post my eagle problems here. I still have no clue how to differentiate them, although the legs are a good trick. anyone have any other guesses. or maybe a answer to the second pic?
