Mississippi Kite

About 5:30 this afternoon – very hot and sunny, with white clouds in a hazy blue sky – a Mississippi Kite flew over our deck, not far above the trees. It was low enough to see a beautiful view of the soft gray plumage and round white head, long slender wings and darker tail held narrow and long, slightly flared. It did not stay long in view, slipping away out of sight behind the trees toward the southwest.
