The Brahminy Kite (Haliastur indus), also known as the Red-backed Sea-eagle, is a medium-sized bird of prey in the family Accipitridae which also includes many other diurnal raptors such as eagles, buzzards and harriers.

This kite is a familiar sight in the skies of India and southeast Asia and as far south as New South Wales, Australia, through which region it is widespread and resident.

It has a typical kite flight, with wings angled, but its tail is rounded unlike the Milvus species, Red Kite and Black Kite, which have forked tails.

The Brahminy Kite is an attractive bird, with chestnut plumage except for the white head and breast and black wing tips. The juveniles are browner, but can be distinguished from both the resident and migratory races of Black Kite in Asia by the paler appearance, shorter wings and rounded tail.

This species nests in trees, often close to water. It feeds as a scavenger.

Known as elang bondol in Indonesia, the Brahminy Kite is the official mascot of Jakarta. It is evaluated as Least Concern on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. In Malaysia, the island of Langkawi is named after the bird ('kawi' describing an ochre-like stone used to decorate pottery, and a reference to the bird's primary plumage colour).

We are neighbours in the gallery today and you have taken the lead to write your comment first, Ganesan :>). Thanks.
I'm in my office at the moment from where I post my daily picture because the internet connection here is better. Then I quit; I'm not supposed to enjoy TN while at work!
Anyway, I thought I would reciprocate with you right away to say that this is a wonderful portrait of an eagle you shot in Kodanad. The image is very sharp and the eye in particular is a real beauty.
Well done and TFS.

Hi Ganesh,
a Brahminy Kite!!
Was this wild or captive.
A beautiful bird you've captured here.
Sharp and like Ram said, the eye is beautiful.
Well done,
Joey

Nice portrait of this Bird of Prey Narayanan.
Lovely catchlight in the eye of the bird.
I also like the low viewing angle, but the image is a little soft imho and therefore does mis some feather detail.
I did rework the image a little in pPhotoshop.
Hope you like it.
Best regards, Harry

Hi Ganesh,
This is a superb shot of a Brahminy Kite! How did you manage to get such a close shot? And just a suggestion - I think you should change your note on the bird...
Cheers,
Uma

Hi Ganesh,
nice image and quite sharp also. But there is some blue cast in the picture. Did you take full bird picture? This is one of the smart and photogranic bird.
