The red kite also breeds in the Ukraine, southern Sweden, Latvia and Italy. It has been reintroduced in the United Kingdom with good success. The current estimated population is 100,000. The 2008 IUCN listing is “Near Threatened.”
Red kites are reddish brown with large white patches under the wings, whitish heads, yellow legs and feet and a deeply forked tail.
