Black kites, Milvus migrans, thrive in urban areas, agricultural areas and grasslands with adequate nesting locations and also occurs in villages and towns, deciduous forest and open areas including wetlands throughout Bangladesh. Black kites roost communally in trees and groves of trees. Communal roosting is thought to provide benefits in terms of decreased predation risk and increased foraging efficiency. Some findings suggest communal roosting is influenced by day length, light intensity and local environmental conditions but this remains controversial. Roosting sites can play a significant role in population regulation in birds.
