Name this Bird

By grinningsoul2011
I wanted to make an interesting image from photos I had taken of a captive bird of prey, so I cropped image down to just the beak. Can you identify the bird of prey from its beak?

Could have sworn it was 'Henrietta' ?......then it stands a chance of being a Goshawk ???????.Wink
What type of bird is Henrietta? Wish it was a Goshawk never been up close to one.

I'd hazard a guess at a Juvenile Black Kite Janet
