  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Glede 
  an  Old  English  name  for  the  common  kite,  mentioned  only  in  Deut. 
  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  R.V.,  "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}.)
