Black – shouldered Kites

Correction: This post has been edited to correct a misidentification of these birds. I erroneously named them Grey Goshawks (Accipter novaehollandiae).

This pair of Black-shouldered Kites (Elanus axillaris) were spotted sitting in a Willow tree on the bank of the Barongarook Creek where it runs into Lake Colac.
