The most abundant of raptors, the Black Kite (Milvus migrans) is an exciting bird to watch in action. It is the spectacular subject of our #58 Bird Photography Challenge.
Named for its loud and penetrating whistling call which prompts you to look up, the Whistling Kite (Haliastur sphenurus) is a distinctive bird of prey, and is the subject of our #46 Bird Photography Challenge.
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.
