It's definitely a Swallow-tailed Kite owing to highly sharp black and white contrast on the wings and overly long forked tail. But, for whatever reason, it has a black cap, or at least looks like a black cap. Cannot explain that! I guess it wants to look like a Sooty Tern (though that species has a white brow)! No, it isn't a tern.

Has anyone replied to this? I did some looking and want to venture a guess that it's possibly a tern - Sooty Tern seems to match it or a Bridled Tern. Love to hear what others think of that. The jiz doesn't seem right for kite.

I didn’t notice it when photographing but what’s with the black cap of this Swallow-tailed Kite?
Take nothing but pictures,
Leave nothing but footprints
Kill nothing but time
