Yellow Billed Kite, Mid Air Feeding

These photographs were taken at The Center For Birds Of Prey. Mississippi Kites live near by, however this particular Kite is from Africa.

Too feed this bird naturally, Kites catch prey in the air, bits of meat are tossed high in the air. The Kite will glide and twist to catch it while flying by.

Most times food is caught with their feet, above he used his beak.

These photographs were taken using a Sigma 150-600 C lens. This is a fast focus lens.
