Brahminy kite        Images © Mark A. Chappell

Australia lacks vultures but has many kinds of kites.   This one, the brahminy kite, looks and acts like a small sea eagle, catching fish and scavenging along the coast of much of northern Australia.  These were in Darwin in the Northern Territory, and in Cairns in North Queensland.
