Hawk Migration

Post by WorldInFocus » Fri Sep 29, 2017 3:56 pm

Hi all,

It's the time when migratory birds move from the northern regions to the south. Here in Taif, Saudi Arabia we see the migration of many birds of prey in late Sept. Here are some pictures taken today (29/9/2017) of some of the birds that have flown here so far. They are mostly kites, buzzards and rarely a few eagles. Not 100% sure if my identification is correct so please correct me if I am wrong.

1. Black Kite
