thanks, Tim..

Yeah, apparently our kites here and your Oz-kites are close relatives. Same genus. Like cousins. ;-) E axillaris vs E leucurus.

For a while here i heard ours called Black shouldered too, but for some years now, they've been called White tailed. Not much difference. I'm glad there are a good supply of them here. They seem to stake out a territory and stick with it a while. They're probably able to know me and my dog by now since I point the camera at them often enough. The red shouldered hawks seem even more acclimated to me, to the point of almost friendly, or at least inquisitive, about us on our walks. Our parkway sees a lot of bike and pedestrian traffic, so the birds aren't too worried about humans, which works for me.
