Hi! First post for me. New to Birding, just started last November. I need help ID-ing these birds. First bird, looks like a Warbler.. sorry those are the only photos I have of it. I get the feeling it will remain a mystery bird. This was taken in Cebu, Manipis/Sinsin. Feb. 8, 2014. It was way up the canopy.
Second bird is a raptor, my best guess is it's a juvy Besra but could also be something else. The video doesn't show much of the mesial stripe. But the photo below will show you the stripe. Taken in Cebu, Mountainview Nature's park, Feb. 16, 2014. Saw this guy land on that branch when I turned towards the trees looking for white-eyes.
Here's another shot with the side of the face. Not sure if it will help.

Thanks for the reply Des! I just looked it up and it does look like a juvenile GFB. I hope it's not asking too much, but I'd like to know what to look for to be able to distinguish these from the sparrowhawks or at least know why you considered the GFB. As you can tell I still have a lot to learn.
