Brahminy Kites used be a common bird in many parts of southern Indian. But now they are most found only the coastal regions.

Sraja, Nice image. Why did they move to the coast? Was it food supply/habitat loss?

They mainly feed on Fish and many of the inland water bodies are dry most of the time now.
