Boids #4

Juvenile Brahminy Kite soars over the pond. The adult will have mostly white head and neck plumage.

 

I believe this is the largest of Thailand's domestic raptors, with a wingspan somewhere in the 1.5 - 1.8 metres range.

 

Brahminy Kites are common throughout South Asia, and even in many coastal areas of Australia [where the bird is called Red-backed Sea-Eagle].

 

Several of these impressive boids seem to regard The Village as their home territory.

 

My challenge is to get a good picture of a Brahminy Kite in flight over the Village.

Great capture Ray! The juvenile has noticed you...
Ray: I certainly felt it had evaluated me, Richard.

I have every faith in your ability to charm the boids from the trees Ray
Ray: Then I shall continue in my quest, Chris.
They should keep the vermin under control
Ray: They certainly do their bit, Martin, but their main food is carrion.
Haven't you just met your challenge?
Ray: I want something way better than this, Mary...something like Rob Martin does so easily.
There's not much, well anything really, wrong with this shot ray, what a magnificent bird.
Ray: They are brilliant birds, Brian...great to watch.
Wow, Ray, I agree with Mary; you've certainly met your challenge with this capture. Superb!
Ray: I feel I should be able to do much better, Beverly.

Looks very impressive but it seems to have seen better days; its feathers need attention. It's a fine capture.
Oh great shot, Ray! He looks like he's do for a plumage molt...
Ray: A young bird, but starting to take adult plumage, Elizabeth. I cannot pick female from male with this species.
