The Brahminy Kite (Haliastur indus) is a handsome raptor of Northern Australia, south Asia, Papua-New Guinea and the Solomon Islands. This bird occasionally visits to perch high on a tree at the bottom of my garden. The Brahminy Kite, like most Australians, prefers to live near the coast. Juveniles lack the unmistakeable deep chestnut and white plumage.
