Black-shouldered Kites in Alice Springs

Near my Dad’s place I found a pair of Black-shouldered Kites. I saw them catch mice only ten metres from me and then sit up in one of many favourite perches to eat. I noticed the Black-shouldered Kites had different favourite perches at different times of the day. They did not spend much time together, however they did not get too far away from each other. Both Kites tended to perch at the top of the tree. I observed they both called to each other.  Hope you like the photos.
