A Conversation for Red Kites - Birds of Prey
Steve K. Started conversation Jul 29, 2003
My wife is a serious birder here in Texas, and still has her copy of "Pocket Guide to the Birds of Britain and Northwest Europe" from our trip to London several years back. It does have an entry for the Red Kite, but unfortunately she has never seen one. On the same page is an entry for the Black Kite, which she did see on a trip to ... Australia. I guess the Empire spread more than cricket.
In southeast Texas, she says one of the most spectacular predators is the swallow-tailed kite. We spend a lot of time on the water, mostly Galveston Bay, and see a rare kite, but we do see a related hawk which is popular, the Osprey. (She tells me they are all hawks, I didn't know that )
