Miki Kites

Tim managed to find roosting Mississippi Kites while doing deliveries at work.  They flew before long, but Rhoda stayed with one of them which flew up within seconds of when I drove up.

I'm still re-learning the art of digiscoping, this was my only work-able image of the bird perched.  A nearby crow harassed it when it would land; at other times the kite would chase the crow.
Mostly it flew in shallow circles a little above the level of the treetops.  It dipped once though I didn't see it catch anything.  Nothing says montage like a kiting kite.

And with that I really need to get on the find-one-yourself scoreboard.
