M'LANG, North Cotabato — Two black-shouldered kite (llanus caerullus) birds rescued by a farmer last May 7 are finally home following their release on Friday morning.
Dario Laydan, park and wildlife officer of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), said the black-shouldered kite is considered as the second smallest ealge specie, next to the falconet, and endemic in the marshy areas.
He said the black-shouldered kite belongs to the family of the Philippine Eagle.
Laydan said the black-shouldered kite bird is also considered as endangered species due to its decreasing number.
Laydan said at least 500 black-shouldered kites have been documented all over the Philippines.> Add a comment >
