At the silos #3

This ‘pair’ of Black-shouldered Kites were another highlight of my visits to the Moolort silos during the week.

There were actually three birds in the party, two adults and an immature bird, possibly one of last seasons offspring. I watched them for almost 15 minutes as they sparred and parried in what appeared to be a mix of courtship and combat. I’m not at all sure about the purpose of these antics.

The immature bird is distinguished by the dark plumage around the throat and neck.
