Black Kite, Milvus migrans

NAIROBI, KENYA — Resident Black Kites (Milvus migrans) throughout most of Africa have yellow bills, unlike the birds in Eurasia and Australasia. Some have considered them a separate species (or two), but strong evidence is not yet available, as far as I know. Whatever they are, they are abundant over Nairobi, and their melancholy whinnies drift down from the skies.
