Khartoum Kites

Yellow-billed kites, common intra-African migrants, are never more prolific than here in Khartoum. This one was perched on the pole just beyond our balcony. I held the camera just out of the door, while keeping myself "invisible" inside. I wonder whether he was eying our budgies who are outdoors during the day...

  1. Nice capture Jo. Better keep an eye on the budgies. I think I'm going to need a SA bird book.

    Word verification: gutsi, sort of like that kite hanging out so close.

  2. Great picture, Jo... Isn't he gorgeous????


  3. What a great shot, Jo! And what a magnificent bird! Hope you have a great week!
