Is it a Kite?


There were quite a handful of birds that I met during my trip to Kangar which I have failed to do at my Cerok Tokun trekking trails.

I did see earlier when farmers burnt the paddy field to get ready for next season of sowing, in the midst of smoke, birds flew around a "food fiesta". They were busy catching insects which tried to escape from the fire. There are abundant of food sources here.

While wandering around, I detected a small bird stayed atop a tree. It was easier to be seen on a bare branch.

When I moved my camera, I saw something. I was very firm to tell it was a kite, and was not a bird, a plane, superman nor UFO. It makes my life easier than solving the bird's identity.

I looked back then, the bird has disappeared.

Has the bird camouflaged itself as a kite, or the kite was actually a bird earlier? My problem arose again.

Very interesting! Quite the puzzle.

If it's a bird, it's not the same one from the first photo. Maybe it's a kite that looks like a bird.

Hmmmm, wow, is it the bird transformed to a kite? Very interesting, I have never seen yet a bird that looks like a kite. But maybe it is a bird, since I can't see the kite's string.

Sharkbytes...Just tried to twist the brain and created some fun. We can always link anything, besides bird to kite, in the Cyberspace.

Jodapoet...Great!! Reincarnate is much more impactful than camouflage.

Ratty...How to describe? "bird kite??" which bears similarity to "spider man". (A kite that evolved from bird?)

Betchai...Transform, camourflage, evolve, reincarnate ...what's more in the list?

Who knows maybe it really is a Kite :)

Kites are raptors with long wings which spend a great deal of time soaring.

WiseAcre...Kites are real raptors when they fight with each other in the sky. The loser will have the string been cut and it fly to no where.
