Kite flies at head of Tyto tidy-up


Going away for a few days next week, so time to tidy up some Tyto holdovers. First up, Black-shouldered Kite (Elanus axillaris) with, possibly, breakfast of juvenile Buff-banded Rail, atop the 'Osprey nest tree'. And the same kite below.


Olive-backed Oriole (Oriolus sagittatus) has a hungry look.


Mistletoebird (Dicaeum hirundinaceum) emerges from deep within preferred habitat.



White-bellied Cucko-shrike (Coracina papuensis) sits up in the morning sunlight.


And a Willie Wagtail to finish off with.

Stunning images, Tony.
How could you have sat on those Kite photos?
