Black Kite (Milvus milgrans)

Black Kite ( Milvus milgrans ) is a medium-sized common raptor and a widespread resident in India,often found around human habitation.They are distinguished by their forked tail and  call.They can be seen soaring and gliding in thermals in search of food.

They are  more scavengers than hunters.Other birds are often chased away by mobbing Black kites (I have seen them attack Indian Roller and Common Kestrel).
