Floating on air

This adult Black-shouldered Kite provided a few moments of delight while I was poking around along Joyce’s Creek at the weekend. It was obviously attached to its perch in a dead River Red-gum, making a number of graceful circuits before alighting gracefully on each occasion. Watch out over the summer for numbers of immature birds of this species, with their rusty-brown upper parts – stay tuned for tomorrow’s post.
