Scouting For Breakfast

In the clear blue sky of morning, this Brahminy kite circles overhead looking for breakfast. The Brahminy kite is one of the most ubiquitous raptors here. It usually lives near water, and eats a variety of things. These pretty brown and white birds are a common sight in the sky.

The local birdwatching guys know that these kites nest every year on the hills inside campus. They've actually seen the nests, though they reported that they didn't find any last year.

These shots was taken from a balcony with maximum zoom (432 mm on the Sony H2).
