Kite: An unclean and keen-sighted bird of prey
(Leviticus 11:14; Deuteronomy 14:13) The Hebrew
word used, 'ayet, is rendered "vulture" in
(Job 28:7) in Authorized
Version, "falcon" in Revised Version. It is probably the red kite
(Milvus regalis), a bird of piercing sight and of soaring habits
found all over Palestine.
