We have a lot of them in Nor Cal. Probably my favorite raptor. Well done!

A beautiful species, Bob, and very well captured. The second shot seems to show it holding a lizard or something.

South Carolina, unfortunately no White-tailed kites. You've got some trophy shots here Bob, great find.

thanks so much. I have heard they are more common in the southwest. I am super stoked to have found these guys and will enjoy them until they move on
