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.
