BRAHMINY is a classic tale from COLIN THIELE, Australia s master storyteller.
'The bird hung in the air above the river. It was so low that Luke could see it clearly, a big nuggety bird with strong talons and curving beak. Its feathers were beautiful a lovely chestnut colour on the back and sides and bright white on the head and breast.'
That was the first time Luke had ever seen a Brahminy kite, or sea eagle. He didn t know then that another Brahminy a helpless, abandoned chick would soon change his life.
