Sharing these photos of the majestic brahminy kites.
The island of Langkawi, Malaysia, is named after the brahminy kite.
According to folklore, the name Langkawi was coined from the words lang and kawi. Lang is short for helang (eagle in Malay) and kawi is the name of a local reddish brown manganese stone, the colour of the kite's primary plumage.
The Iban natives of Upper Rajang, Sarawak, Malaysia, believe the brahminy kite to be the manifestation of Singalang Burung. Also known as the God of War. Singalang Burung takes the form of a brahmini kite whenever he comes down to earth.
