Twice over the past week I’ve caught fleeting views of a Square-tailed Kite in the Mia Mia. On both occasions a single bird appeared just above the canopy, floating into view as it searched for prey, nestlings plucked from nests or their unwary parents. Red Wattlebirds are apparently a favourite meal. This rarely seen raptor is a spring migrant to our district, most likely travelling all the way from northern Australia to breed at Newstead.
