Brahminy kite (Haliastur indus)

With its sharply contrasting plumage, the widespread Brahminy kite is an unmistakable bird of prey. While its head, neck, throat, upper belly, and flanks are generally white, the rest of the body, including the wing coverts, thighs and tail, is largely bright chestnut. The only conspicuous exceptions are the black outer flight feathers and the white-tipped tail. The sexes are similar in appearance but while there is some overlap in size, females tend on average to be slightly larger than the males. Juvenile Brahminy kites are various shades of brown, with darker upperparts and a lighter head and underparts. Four subspecies, occupying different ranges and differing slightly in appearance, are currently recognized: Haliastur indus indus, Haliastur indus intermedius, Haliastur indus girrenera and Haliastur indus flavirostris.
