Australian brahminy kite / sea eagle in flight

Brahminy kite / sea eagle, Haliastur indus, in flight IMG 4768B - The majestic brahminy kite is a legendary bird of prey that’s as much at home in south-eastern Asia as it is in Australia. It spreads its wings over India where it’s revered as the sacred bird that carried the Hindu deity Lord Vishnu to the heavens, but in Indonesia it’s a symbol of the modern era, for this beautiful bird has been adopted as the official emblem of the city of Jakarta and represents the government’s commitment to the protection of native wildlife.
