Today was dominated by black and white birds.
These two immature Black-shouldered Kites were spotted out on the plains, with one of the parents nearby. They look to be just fledged, leading me to suspect they are the result of a winter breeding effort.
A distant view of one of our resident White-bellied Sea-eagles, dispatching what appeared to be a carp, was perhaps the highlight of my visit to the lake. I wish it had come as close as this Australian Pelican.
Postscript: Thanks to fellow nature blogger, Duncan Fraser of Ben Cruachan, for a nice enhancement to the image of the immature Black-shouldered Kites.
