Brahminy Kite

Rather a fuzzy photo of a Brahminy Kite (haliastur indus) in a tree on the far side of our rapidly-evaporating wetlands-dam. These are medium-sized birds of prey and are common throughout India, Asia and northern Australia and we often see them gliding effortlessly overhead.

It is very hot and humid now with an occasional afternoon storm to cools things down but, thankfully for us, nothing like the storms that other parts of Australia have been suffering. Our weather pattern is very typical for this time of year as we approach the beginning of our wettest time of year which is usually February and March.
