The Living Forest (175) : Red Kite

The Red Kite is a medium-large bird of prey that is almost entirely restricted to Europe, but in Belgium it’s a rare species.

With its reddish-brown plumage, it is considered in Great-Britain as ‘the most beautiful bird of prey of the land’.

The Red Kite is a typical inhabitant of deciduous forests and wet valleys with open habitats for foraging.
