BIRDS OF GOA: APRIL'15 - PART 4

BRAHMINY KITE

One of the most beautiful birds of prey to be found in the Indian peninsular region, the Brahminy Kite is associated with the mythical creature Garuda, the king of the birds and the mount of Lord Vishnu in several cultures around the world. I shot this wonderful avian while it was perched on a coconut palm near my Bhabi's place at Goa Velha.
