Pandora - Black Kite - Milvus migransSpecies Name: Milvus migrans

Pandora is a female Black Kite born in August 2004.

Dont get confused by the name because they are not a black bird.  Black kites are a mixture of light and dark brown certainly not a black bird are the name suggests.

During flying displays Pandora shows a number of natural behavours including circling and souring, catching on the wing, raking stealing and fishing.

Another natural behavour is fire stick farming demonstrated by picking up sticks and moving them to other locations.
