After leaving warm water (for Vermont) .. I was looking over my photos and reviewing reef.org.

 

Reating the post, it looks like this photo is also of a Hawskbill ..  In about 10 feet of water near Cruz Bay, St. John USVI..   I saw the same animal for several days..

Yes, you can tell from your very nice photos that it is a hawksbill.  Here is a link to a great sea turtle identifier you can print out or refer to online:  http://www.seaturtle.org/documents/ID_sheet.pdf
