It looks like a kite of some species. But we don't have them here so I'm not familiar.

That was my thoughts. And I have spotted swallow tail kites the last few years, in the spring.
Taken in northern Florida last night.

Thanks

Well, I think it's a kite too, but it's not a Scissor Tail......I also checked White Tailed Kite, but yours looks like it has a black tail, so I'm stumped. EDIT....I think Steve got it bang on! The map shows it not normally in Florida, so good catch!

Here's a Scissor Tailed Kite I got in Florida a couple of months ago.

Steve:

Thanks for the help. After much internet searching I think you are right about the Mississippi Kite.

Ian:

I have spotted the scissor tail/swallow tail here for the last couple of springs, but haven't been able to photograph one yet.
