Mivus milvus – – Accitridae – Their population is very low compared to that of the Black kite. Only 2500 to 3000 couples are known in and 20 000 elsewhere, mostly in Europe. Their wingspan exceeds easily 1.50 m; as with almost all other the female is the largest. I feel quite privileged to observe them on regular basis and to be able to take pictures.

Milan royal: Son envergure dépasse 1.50m et comme souvent chez les rapaces, la femelle est plus grande que le mâle sinon pas de dimorphisme particulier. Leur plumage est somptueux on le croirait peint! Sa population est bien moindre que celle des Milans noirs, on ne compte que 2500 à 3000 couples sur le territoire français, 20 000 ailleurs – la plupart en Europe. C’est un réel privilège de pouvoir les photographier et c’est avec une grande admiration que je les observe régulièrement.
