Yellow-billed Kite

Milvus aegyptius


As suggested by its name, the Yellow-billed Kite is easily recognized by its entirely yellow bill, unlike that of the Black Kite (which is present in Africa as a visitor during the North Hemisphere winter). However, immature Yellow-billed Kites resemble the corresponding age of the Black Kite.


Spotted this kite enjoying an easy meal on the road in the Kruger Park. Not exactly sure if this is the Yellow-billed kite. Maybe someone can confirm?
