In this amazing clip Andrew Ucles uses this bird's hunting cues to his advantage. Using smoke as a lure and both rabbit and fox gut as bait he craftly develops a net trap from basic materials to bring you eye to eye with one of Australia's most beautiful bird species, the Whistling Kite hawk...watch a type of bird capture like never before.
The advantage of understanding an animals feeding cues is you can plan an attack right under his paws or beak. In this footage Andrew Ucles teaches you how to catch this bird of prey with no more than just a net and some string. Once again Ucles finds a weakness in the animals feeding regime and uses it to his advantage.
