The Brahminy Kite is a small fish eagle resembling a kite-sized American Bald Eagle or African Fish Eagle more than the "Milvus" kites. It has a rounded rather than forked tail. In Australia it is called the Red-backed Sea Eagle. Its range is most of the Indian sub-continent and much of the coastal areas of southeast Asia including all of the Malay Peninsula, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea and as far south as Australia.
