Glede

the old name for the common kite (Milvus ater), occurs only in (14:13) among the unclean birds of prey.

ATS Bible Dictionary
Glede

A kind of hawk or kite, De 14:13. The same Hebrew word is translated vulture in Le 11:14.

Easton's Bible Dictionary
An Old English name for the common kite, mentioned only in Deuteronomy 14:13 (Hebrews 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.)
Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
1. (n.) The common European kite (Milvus ictinus). This name is also sometimes applied to the buzzard.

2. (n.) A live coal.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
GLEDE

gled (ra`ah; gups): A member of the hawk species. It is given among the list of abominations in Deuteronomy 14:13, but not in the Leviticus list (Leviticus 11:14). The kite is substituted. The Arabs might have called one of the buzzards the glede. In England, where specimens of most of these birds appear in migration, the glede is synonymous with kite, and was given the name from glide, to emphasize a gliding motion in flight. See illustration, p. 1235.
