Brahminy Kite

Bird Photography Challenge #29: Brahminy Kite

We often admire the Brahminy Kite (Haliastur indus) along the coast, particularly in Queensland along the mangrove flats.  It is unmistakable and you can see why it is also known in Australia as the red-backed sea eagle.  This beautiful bird of prey is the subject of our #29 Bird Photography Challenge.
