it was 12 o'clock and I was searching for something to photograph suddenly a black kite flew over my head. I was fascianted because it was really close! Then the bird flew toward a tree whre two hooded crows were resting. The crows flew away but the kite was too close. After some aerobatics the kite isolated one crow and chased it down. I was amazed because I tought that a crow was too big for a kite but I was wrong.
I know that this photo isn't beautiful but I uploaded it beacuse of the story that tells.
The black kite is a medium-sized bird of prey in the family Accipitridae, which also includes many other diurnal raptors. It is thought to be the world's most abundant species of Accipitridae, although some populations have experienced dramatic declines or fluctuations. Current global population estimates run up to 6 million individuals. Unlike others of the group, black kites are opportunistic hunters and are more likely to scavenge.
