Yellow-billed Kite (Milvus aegyptius) - Wiki

Yellow-billed Kite
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

[Photo] Western Yellow-billed Kite, Milvus aegyptius parasitus photographed in Dakar, Senegal. Date 1 July 2006. Author Christiaan Kooyman Original: License: public domain.

The Yellow-billed Kite (Milvus aegyptius) is the Sub-Saharan and North-east African counterpart of the Black Kite (Milvus migrans), of which it is most often considered a subspecies. However, recent DNA studies suggest that the Yellow-billed Kite differs significantly from Black Kites in the Eurasian clade, and should be considered as a separate, allopatric species.

There are two subspecies: M. a. parasitus, found throughout West, East and Southern Africa, except for the Congo basin and the Sahara Desert (with intra-African migrations) and M. a. aegyptius of Egypt and the Horn of Africa (which disperses south during the non-breeding season).
