Kite gathering

Last weekend offered lots of photographic opportunities. Late on Sunday I witnessed a interesting gathering of kites out on the Moolort Plains. About a dozen birds – half of them Black Kites, the remainder Whistling Kites, were all perched on a dead tree in the middle of the plains. My arrival prompted them to form a swirling mass in the air above me for at least ten minutes before they dispersed.

  1. Lovely photos. It’s always fun trying to figure out bird behavior.
