I love watching these kites swoop and swerve with their tails acting as rudders and there were plenty around at the end of October. The nest was at Sable Dam and the other pics were taken at Lower Sabie.

Great pics, saw lots of them in Kruger the first two weeks of this month.

YBK's put a big smile on my face. I love raptors, and seeing them soar effortlessly just makes me grin.

KITE WATCHERS ALERT!
I am still seeing kites in Durban, though I don't think as many!
Lets have a daily KITE Report so we get a good idea of when the bulk of them depart.
:great:

Been out of the bird watching scene for a while now (if you can call 15 years a while). Great to be back again I must say. Nevertheless, need to verify one or two little buggers if possible please.

Tawny?

The Kites are back in SA.

I saw my first kite this morning on my way to work between White River and Nelspruit. It swooped down to pick up some sort of road kill. Just hope itself didn't become roadkill.

Spring is almost upon us.
