Hi Avian Aficionados

Discovered a few more photos in my collection - likely of the same raptor a few minutes later (happily gaining a lot of height).

Collage: (using zoom from 30X to 200X)
Photo 1: (double sized crop of 30X zoom)
Photo 2: (double sized crop of 40X zoom)

I guess it doesn't much resemble an adult Black-shouldered Kite - but I'm not familiar with how young Kite's look. 8-)


PS The Email ("chatline") mailer is beyond lame! 8-(
