CommentI was confused with the ID of this bird at the time I took the photo. However my field guide put me on the track of a juvenile Whistling Kite, The fine neck feathers have a frilled look whist the body colour is much darker than the adult making the white tips to the feathers stand out. A rare occasion where the juvenile is more striking than the adult.
EquipmentCanon 5DlV, Canon EF400 F4 DO IS 11 USM Lens 1.4x TC 560mm 1/800 F7.1 ISO 800
