This is another addition to my small collection of images if birds of prey. This Whistling Kite was hunting over the open paddocks - thats "fields' to some people! - near Point Lonsdale on the Bellarine Peninsula near Point Lonsdale. Its been a regular holiday destination for us over the last few years, but following the death of Sal's mum we now have less reason to go. Pictures like this remind me that we need to find a reason.
This bird is probably a juvenile and it was happily giving its classic sliding down the scale whistle. I watched the bird for at least 20 minutes as it quartered the paddocks around me. I suppose I was hoping that it would catch something - but it did not even seem to find a small possible meal!
Now its your turn to be involved in the 15th week of Wild Bird Wednesday.
