Black-shouldered Kite

Elanus axillaris

I have seen a hawk-like beast for a couple of weeks now, but did not have my camera with me at the time. But today, while I was seeking tiny wrens and their friends, this Black-shouldered Kite landed on a flood-light.

It was soon sent on its way by some Noisy Miners. Some birds have no fear.
