Skywatch Friday - Birds

A simple photo of skywatch today, showing some birds circling above me. Not sure what type of birds are they, they are actually very far from me but I zoomed on them while photographing them.

Very interesting and abstract. They look like pepper on grey table spread.

maybe too far to distinguish what are those, but it's certainly showing a sign of not a good weather.

happy weekend and happy skywatching!

Wow, so many of them. I suppose the photo was taken in S'pore or nearby. If the birds were gliding on the wind current (ie. not so much wing-flapping), then they are probably either one of these 2 native/SE Asian birds of prey: Haliastur indus (Brahminy Kite) or Haliaeetus leucogaster (White-bellied Sea Eagle).

Your zoom is not close enough & the birds are under-exposed in the photo, so it is not possible to tell the exact species -- unless you recall by sight the colour of the birds' underside. As its common name implies, Haliaeetus leucogaster has much more white on its belly.
