The plumbeous kite is a bird of prey in the family Accipitridae. This is a bird of lowland forest and savannah, which builds a stick nest in a tree and lays 1-2 blue-white eggs. It is typically 33–38 cm long and weighs 190-280g. It is not particularly gregarious, although it is often seen in flocks during migration.
