2 together over Yass Gorge on Sunday, chasing and grappling and making a bit of noise which I've never noticed before. Possible courtship display?

FWIW I saw one last week in the grasslands between the Majura parkway and the Campbell Park forest.

My neighbour, who drives this way regularly, has told me that she has often seen these birds near the turn-off to Coppins Crossings.

2 Black-shouldered Kites were present just north of Coppins Crossing on Monday afternoon. One was carrying a stick in its beak as it flew towards a pine tree but I wasn’t able to watch where it landed.
