Found in coastal areas of northern and eastern Australia, the Brahminy Kite (Haliastur indus) can be seen performing aerial acrobatics during their mating displays. As a type of raptor (bird of prey), they feed on a variety of insects, fish and other small animals. They are expert at stealing from other fish-hunting birds by snatching prey in flight.
