Re recent discussion about the absence of Black-shouldered Kites, we in SA
have frequently commented on an apparent absence of these birds on SOME DAYS
in areas where they are normally quite abundant. A similar phenomenon has
been observed with Kestrels. Sometimes we go a whole day's driving without
seeing one. Other days they seem to be everywhere. As yet no-one has made
any feasible suggestion as to why these on days/off days might occur, but
I'd be interested in hearing any thoughts on the mystery.
