Black Kites in Tabuk – Bird records by Viv Wilson

Viv has been out looking for birds again and is constantly finding birds of prey to photograph. He took a number of photographs over the weekend of Black Kites in the area including adults and juveniles some of which show features of Black-eared Kites. The trouble is there is a big interbreeding area of Black Kite and Black-eared Kite that makes identifying anything but very obvious birds tricky. Viv also took a nice photograph of an adult type Steppe Eagle showing the underwing pattern very nicely which was published with yesterdays post. Viv has once again allowed me to use his photographs on my website and I thank him very much.
