Letter-winged Kite

Image Code: Letter-winged Kite MRW3863

Elanus scriptus   A small, rare and irruptive raptor with a core range in central Australia. The Letter-winged Kite derives its name from the very distinctive black underwing pattern of a shallow ‘M’ shape, seen when in flight. Roosting during the day in well-foliaged trees and hunting at night, it is the world's only fully nocturnal raptor. It is a specialist predator of rodents which it hunts by hovering in mid-air above grasslands and fields.
