An Old English name for the common kite, mentioned only in Deuteronomy 14:13 (Heb. ra'ah), the Milvus ater or black kite. The Hebrew word does not occur in the parallel passage in ( Leviticus 11:14 , da'ah, rendered "vulture;" in RSV, "kite"). It was an unclean bird. The Hebrew name is from a root meaning "to see," "to look," thus designating a bird with a keen sight. The bird intended is probably the buzzard, of which there are three species found in Palestine. (See VULTURE .)
