Yellow-billed Kite juvenile [Milvus migrans]

A beauty this is, an African bird.
In the next month or two I will be moving, still in the Forest of Dean. This means, I won't be looking for you on 'My Blog List'. And, I won't put up as many as I used to.

  43. That brings some memories. I did my Master's degree in Florida in nonprofit management. Most of my research and hands-on experience came from the Audobon Center for Birds of Prey, here is the link: http://fl.audubon.org/audubon-center-birds-prey. I've observed kites in wild and the center many times. Beautiful beings. Your photography is superb. Your musical taste too. Burning Spear is still burning after all these years: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VlY-rE9CMlU. Regards Bob. Piotr
