Christening gone wrong: Me, they call a Black Shouldered Kite! I wonder why I was named as such? Was the ornithologist who saw me first was colour blind and missed the ruby red eyes. He could have named me the Ruby Eyed Kite or Precious Kite….Phew!!!!
Let me not be judgemental. Guess I may be snoozing when he spotted me. But if that’s the case I would have preferred the name Snowy Breasted Kite 😉. Humans sometimes make terrible mistakes and we birds have to bear it for the rest of our live and carry such ignominious name. Birds and Beasts are not the only one to bear this brunt always!!! The trend is continuing and now they also try weird names on their offspring too😄😛😉😂
