Both birds are quite similar in appearance sharing their striking plumage which is a Chestnut red/brown with a White hood. Parenting duties with these birds is a shared arrangement, but the female Brahminy kite does the Majority of the nest sitting. While this is going on the male Brahminy kite will feed his mate. Both parents will hunt for food for their offspring.
