brahminy-kite

To find this Kite in Bangpu is always a treat and at least we see a raptor every time visit the place and it has not failed. As this bird of a raptor is obviously a hunter, it waits on a perch and selects its prey and then launches to the target; but the beauty is not just about that, it is when it glides like a kite on air, smoothly sailing the wind, using its tail to steer here and there, and then the dive to where the prey is.
