Black-shouldered Kite

Southbrook, Queensland, Australia

March 2013

A couple of Black-shouldered Kites sitting on electrical lines in the Southbrook to Felton area. They're lovely little graceful raptors and it's a healthy sign to have them around. Notice their short, fat  toes for dropping belly first into long grass after rats and mice. I have seen them go for birds such as starlings as well.
