Anyone photographed a White Tailed Kite?

  1. Greetings

    Anyone have any pics of White Tailed Kites from the Carmel Ca area?

    I'm visiting Carmel Ca and there's a couple of hawks nesting near our rental house. I think they are WTK's but they don't have the brilliant white breast coloring that I've seen on some bird ID sites. Their coloring is a bit more grey. I don't have long lens with me so I'm not sure I can get a decent pic myself.

    Thanks

    Here's one hovering above the water looking for prey (It's not from Carmel, but has vacationed there :smile:):

    I have a few more scattered around my SmugMug Raptor gallery.
     
  3. Hi Gene

    Thanks a bunch for posting the pic. :biggrin:.

    Perhaps on Monday I'll get a better look at these local raptors.

    Regards
