(Later Edit: I have been told that this is a black shouldered kite)
Driving through some wilderness today, I spotted this bird which I am unable to identify. Can anyone help?
The location was somewhere between Pulicat Lake and Ponneri (in Tamil Nadu, India) and the bird made a sort of whistling noise.
Unfortunately I had to capture the shot in very bad and harsh light and the picture is not as good as I would have wanted it to be- but it serves as a record shot.
