|Yellow-billed Kite has very sharp vision and excellent flying to catch the prey. Reducing its numbers in Ahmedabad due difficulty for nesting due to urbanization.|
The Yellow-billed Kite (Milvus aegyptius) is the Afrotropic counterpart of the Black Kite (Milvus migrans), of which it is most often considered a subspecies. However, recent DNA studies suggest that the Yellow-billed Kite differs significantly from Black Kites in the Eurasian clade, and should be considered as a separate, allopatric species.
There are two subspecies: M. a. parasitus, found throughout most of sub-Saharan Africa (including Madagascar), except for the Congo Basin (with intra-African migrations) and M. a. aegyptius of Egypt, south-west Arabia and the Horn of Africa (which disperses south during the non-breeding season).

Nice scene, but the image is very noisy (probably you cropped very heavily) and you were using the clone stamp (top left part of the pic) a bit careless way, there are quite disturbing lines which grabs the viewer's attention. However, I don't see too many differences between the original and the RP and you didn't explain in your note why you re-posted the image.
Best regards, László
In the main I agree with László's critique but nevertheless want to congratulate you on capturing the action. Best wishes.
