The black kite (Milvus migrans) is a medium-sized bird of prey in the family Accipitridae, which also includes many other diurnal raptors. Black kites can be distinguished from red kites by the slightly smaller size, less forked tail (visible in flight), and generally dark plumage without any rufous. The sexes are alike. The upper plumage is brown but the head and neck tend to be paler. The patch behind the eye appears darker. The outer flight feathers are black and the feathers have dark cross bars and are mottled at the base. The lower parts of the body are pale brown, becoming lighter towards the chin. The body feathers have dark shafts giving it a streaked appearance. The cere and gape are yellow, but the bill is black (unlike in the yellow-billed kite). The legs are yellow and the claws are black. They have a distinctive shrill whistle followed by a rapid whinnying call. Males and females have the same plumage but females are longer than males. Their wingspan is around 150 cm. #birds #birdsconservation #nikonphoto #nikonasia #nikonphotography #picsart #instagram #clickindiaclick #clickshotindia #indianphotography #india #wildlifeasia #wildlifeofficial #wildindia #wildplanet #indianwildlife #nationalgeographic #nature #naturephotography #natgeo #discoverychannel #animalplanet #bbcearth #bbcwildlife #dslrofficial #photooftheday #indianpictures #world #worldwildlife #earthplanet
The laughing dove (Spilopelia senegalensis) is a small pigeon that is a resident breeder in Africa, the Middle East and the Indian Subcontinent. This small long-tailed dove is found in dry scrub and semi-desert habitats where pairs can often be seen feeding on the ground. A rufous and black chequered necklace gives it a distinctive pattern and is also easily distinguished from other doves by its call. Other names include laughing turtle dove, palm dove and Senegal dove while in India the name of the little brown dove is often used. #birds #birdsprivate #birdsconservation #nikonindiaofficial #nikonasia #picsart #instagram #clickindiaclick #indiaclicks #birdsplanet #eyespybirds #wildlifeasia #indianwildlife #discoverychannel #bbcearth #animalplanet #nature #nature #natgeo #himachalpradesh #himalayas #wildlifeofficial #dslrofficial #lenscaptureofficial #birdsphoto #himalayanbirds #birdsofindia #kingofbirds #earth
