The number and sub-species of kites have decreased drastically during the past 3 – 5 decades. Locally they were known in many a name. The one picture down here is not seen here, if not rarely, known as shankhachil. We used to see more often of them swooping down to catch fishes in front of us children. They used to sit atop big trees making shrill sound on seeing a prey. I used to see some black or red kite feeding young ones on a palm tree from our house. I think decreasing vegetation along with indiscriminate application of chemicals on crops have a deciding role.
