Indonesia 1997 - Flora and Fauna National Day FDC


The Brahmini Kite (Haliastur indus) is known lately as the mascot of Jakarta. It has bright chestnut plumage with white head, neck and breast. It has perfect flying ability and sharp vision in hunting its victims such as fish, frogs, snake and lizards. Their remaining habitats are the Thousand Islands (Kepulauan Seribu) and Jakarta Bay (Teluk Jakarta), where they can find mangrove forest.
