Two Mississippi Kites

On my way back toward home, around 10:30 in the morning, two Mississippi Kites came flying over, low enough to see the brownish juvenile patterns and bars, and pale round heads, as well as the clean, sharp outlines of the wings and tail. They stayed around for several minutes, sweeping low over the treetops, disappearing out of sight, then climbing and circling, sometimes soaring very high, one tucked its wings and plummeted down, and sailed back up. They put on quite a show of acrobatic flight.
