This Whistling Kite was sitting near the road when we stopped. It flew off and landed on the Tablelands Highway, Barkly Tablelands, NT.

My brother, dad and 4 other people from BirdLife Central Australia recently went to Connells Lagoon Conservation Reserve. There are some special grasses there, and the Flock Bronzewings like the grasses. Late in the afternoon, all of us were sitting at the lagoon with the sun behind us and the lagoon in front of us. I took this video of the birds flying past and then landing on the other side of the lagoon. I hope you like it.

My brother, dad and I were up at Connells Lagoon Conservation Reserve. We had seen the falcon from a little bit down the road, and dad had taken some photos. He said to start filming and the falcon might take off as we started moving. He was right.
