White Tailed Kite

January 22, 2015

This past weekend, we went down to Bay City, Texas to check on the property and while there, I saw two hawks fighting mid-air. Not sure what they were... I zoomed in with my camera and saw that one was a Red Tailed Hawk... and the other... a new lifer for me... a White Tailed Kite! Incoming!

Making a landing... and take off...

Hovering for prey...
Very exciting to see... and subtly different than the Mississippi Kite I saw last June.

An Eastern Phoebe watched from a nearby tree.

... and from a wire...

There were also about 15 Savannah Sparrows checking out the goods in the field... one quite content with just grass to much on!
