The Bird

I've been seeing large birds from my rooftop ever since I arrived; this morning I finally got some pictures of one. (Oh, for a telephoto lens!)

Update from my father-in-law:

Great shot! It is a Black Kite, a very common scavenger/predator in North India, less common in South India. They are very elegant flyers, effortlessly soaring, constantly twisting their forked tail to maintain a steady course. They have a huge range. I have seen them in Europe and Africa as well as in India.
