    Urban birding can also be a pleasure. Though the rewards are fewer. I was standing on my terrace when I saw this Black Kite flying straight at me.

    Black Kite

    The commonest Kite in Mumbai. Not the prettiest by any yardstick. But this bird is interesting to watch with its antics, mock fights, mid air acrobatics  and love-hate relationship with the crow. I have many images of these fellows, but thought this one looked interesting, tad majestic. After all this bird rules the Mumbai skies. A brief note from wiki:…
