Haliastur indus


The Brahminy Kite (Haliastur indus) also known as the Red-backed Sea-eagle in Australia, is a medium-sized bird of prey. They are found in the Indian subcontinent, Southeast Asia, and Australia. They are found mainly on the coast and in inland wetlands where they feed on dead fish and other prey. Adults have a reddish brown plumage and a contrasting white head and breast which makes them easy to distinguish from other birds of prey. (Wiki) Clicked at Ernakulam in Jan/2014.

  1. Awesome. It reminds me of our infamous national bird the Bald Eagle. I really like the red-coloring of its feathers. Nice job capturing it with such great wingspan. Birds of Prey are always so powerful looking. 😀
