Battle of the Kites

Although a bit hard to see at first, this photo shows two kites that stopped and saw the same food source, and each are plotting to get there first.

As Whistling Kite, looks out towards a Black Kite flying along the range they begin to circle around to get their easy meal.

Despite majestic appearances, these birds are ultimately scavengers first, and don't usually hunt for anything in particular.

Australia, has no vultures, and it is very apparent that these birds will fill that niche in the food chain.
