"Lineatus" Black Kite

An abundant winter visitor to Hong Kong ~ this species was less tricky to track down than the Norfolk bird a few years back, with the kites utilising the hotel roof to rest inbetween scavenging. Photographically I messed up with this form of black kite, missing the bright sunny days to capture some images of them patrolling the busy waterway that separates Kowloon from Hong Kong Island. The kites would frequently take food items off the water surface, almost osprey-like!
