The Black Kites [Milvus migrans] and Brahminy kites (Haliastur indus) are found in a variety of habitats, from wooded streams to open plains and are commonly seen in and around remote towns. The Present study shows that there is a considerable decline in the abundance of Black kites during heavy monsoon [June- September]. Thereafter the number gradually increases from October to May to reach its peak during March and April. The study indicates that there is a local migration among Black kites during South-West monsoon. Such a trend is not shown by Brahminykites. The probable reasons are also discussed.
