Peneireiro-cinzento, Black-winged kite

(Elanus caeruleus)

I found this kite while eating a mouse, You can see it in the WS.
The feeding moments are the most appropriate to approach this bird especially when You are shooting from the car.
Also very territorial birds You can found the couples in the breeding areas.

More info about the species:

Have a good day and thanks for viewing...
