Whistling Kite

at the top of this Casuarina

looking out over the lake


where something was making a lot of noise a long way out; a school of fish, or could it have been a ray under there?  A long strip of movement?







it heard a bird calling from this side

Great photos of this beautiful bird of prey.
Sharpness and exposure of the photos is really quite perfect compliment.
Photo 2 is my favorite.

Great bird - I was amazed at how many Kites there where around the centre of Alice Springs!

Also had hoped (but failed) to get pictures of mistletoe bird - oh well!

Cheers - Stewart M

PS: Central Australia really is worth the time, effort and money!
