Dr Belinda's Daily Vetlife 006 - Black-Shouldered Kite
What are you looking at??? We had a young Black-Shouldered Kite visit us on Monday afternoon. These birds of prey live across mainland Australia and feed mostly on mice. Fortunately my staff realised the potential danger in handling these birds and we had a professional bird handler come out to care for and rehabilitate him/her.
With a sharp beak and nice long talons I'm pleased to report all of my staff have all of their fingers still attached to their hands.
