Thanks for sharing this fabulous article. Number one, Australian aboriginal people should be taken seriously about their observations and legends. They have have witnessed more in Australia than anyone else will ever see. As a lot of people can tell, birds are highly intelligent, generally speaking. A type of black kite, from what I've read, are also found in India and Pakistan where they are often scavengers. They can see and understand behaviors and results. That's right, just like some humans. :) I love this kind of article or scientific report. Please keep sending them! Thanks, Karen.
