black kite

Imagine my excitement to find Kites flying around Darwin like Lories and Maggies do here. I couldn't help but stop and stare and snap.

The Black Kite is the most abundant raptor (bird of prey) in the world.
fabulous shot Annie....awesome...

Aaaah! I didn't know the name in English, so i thought it was a toy kite. :)
I recognize the translation in Dutch, but it's a rarity in our region.

Fav. Brilliant capture. He must have been flying very low or you had a great zoom lens. I tried to captured birds like this when we were in the Black Forest but none of the shots came out clear enough.
