Black (Pariah) Kite

    Newer Older

    Black Kites are most often seen gliding and soaring on thermals as they search for food. The flight is buoyant and the bird glides with ease, changing directions easily. The Indian populations are well adapted to living in cities and are found in densely populated areas. Large numbers may be seen soaring in thermals over cities. In some places they will readily swoop and snatch food held by humans. They are also a major nuisance at some airports, where their size makes them a significant birdstrike hazard.
