A hawk sky, with no hawks!

I have mentioned on a number of occasions that I don't seem to get pictures of birds of prey - so here are two for the price of one!

The lower of the two birds is a Little Eagle and the upper one a Whistling Kite.  I used a wonderful Australia Bird ID group on FB to check these identifications - I can recommend this group highly!


You can find more sky shots at Sky Watch Friday.  SM
