Kite
In Animals. The Hebrew term da'ah of Leviticus 11:14 is believed by some translators to be a reference to a kite. Some scholars dispute this and suggest instead that the word should be viewed as a reference to a vulture. The text states that the above animal is to be regarded as non-kosher and unclean.

The kite is a small member of the hawk family.
