Black kite

Milvus migrans


Black kite...... Studies show that it is more a scavenger than a hunter. May be it has lost its natural predatory instincts, and show opportunistic characteristics to snatch kills from other birds or road kills. As such urbanization helps its population. Bengali name : Chil ( চিল ). Taken : Amta/WB/India
