Wildlife help

Question

I have this bird as a Northern Goshawk (Accipiter gentilis) but I'm  no wildlife expert and would appreciate confirmation from someone more knowledgeable.

The creature flew into our home here in Thailand and was rescued by my wife. I grabbed a few snaps prior to us releasing it, (and before the cat woke up!)

 

Thanks for any input

Thailand is way way far from the range of the Northern Goshawk.  If it is one, it's a juvenile escapee from either a falconer or a zoo.  Crested goshawk is more likely.  Google Thailand  hawks for examples.  Don't see the crest on that one, but could be an adult trait.  Eye color in accipiters tend to be yellow in adult birds, too.
