White-tailed kite

White-tailed kite


White-tailed Kite roosts communally during non-breeding seasons. Researchers have yet to determine whether the White-tailed Kite is migratory, nomadic, or both. The child’s toy made of wood and paper was named for these birds. A group of kites has many collective nouns, including a "brood", "kettle", "roost", "stooping", and "string" of kites.
