Square-tailed Kite blinks at challenge

Rare raptor maybe, but some Tyto residents not impressed when Square-tailed Kite (Lophoictinia isura) drifted in over the treetops yesterday. White-breasted Woodswallow gives blinking visitor the message.

But the brief time overhead was mostly plain and effortless sailing.

Even more splendid in the air over the main lagoon lately, Eastern Grass-Owl (Tyto longimembris). So close a bit of wing missed enclosure in the frame.
