If this bird is actually named Tiny I am fucking delighted.
The Red Kite (Milvus milvus) is a medium-large bird of prey in the family Accipitridae, which also includes many other diurnal raptors such as eagles, buzzards, and harriers.
These birds are incredibly fast and agile and they use their large fan-shaped forked tails to provide steering. That makes them remarkably difficult to photograph, particularly as they were at this time frenzied and swooping around as some fresh meat had just been laid out at the feeding station nearby.
Photos of some remarkably beautiful birds.
THEY HAVE THE SWEETEST VOICES EVER ;~;
