[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Brahminy Kite (Haliastur indus) found very commonly along the coast of the Indian subcontinent, is the easiest of all birds of prey to recognize, due to its Red Brown plumage and White Head.

This ones taken from beneath with the early morning Sun breaking the Red brown plumage in to various shades.

This one was circling at tree top height as I had intruded its territory, before it settled down high on the tree top.
