Mon 27highlightSquare-tailed Kite
Kaiserstuhl Conservation Park
One bird observed low over the park, circling overhead. Moulting but chestnut visible on breast, black terminal tail band and white face visible head and side on. Discounted other possible species based on these observations and experience of this bird and others. Out of its range but maybe displaced by drought or fires.
