The following is a digest of Sightings Reported on Birdpedia for the period 
Monday, May 4, 2015 to Sunday, May 10, 2015:

Area: SA

Date: Sunday, May 3, 2015

Location: On our Rockleigh property

Whistling Kite (Haliastur sphenurus) (1) This was only the second whistling 
kite we have seen at our place. It was cruising around taking little notice of 
the harassing magpie. A little later a brown falcon flew at high speed along 
the creekline with 3 magpies in hot pursuit. Third raptore was a wedge-tailed 
eagle, rapidly seen off our land by, guess what, a magpie. Why do raptores put 
up with it ? If wedgies retaliated and ate a few magpies, would that act as a 
deterrent ?
