Dear All,
A (presumed) pair of Blackshouldered kites have returned to Mulgoa Valley, 
along with many other seasonal  birds, it has been a lush season. They 
disappear,likely migrating north, during the colder months. although we are 
still having frosts. Does anyone know of specific northern areas where they 
congregate ?
BSKites are beautiful, delicate birds, almost fragile, wonderful hoverers, 
 seem to live on grasshoppers, lizards and mice. Like other beautiful BOPs 
their calls are harsh.
Various sub spp occur throughout S Asia and S Europe, migrate to Africa, 
indistinguishable from one another to the casual observer.  From afar, in Oz, 
they could be confused with Letterwinged kites during inland droughts.

      Best.    Michael
