Hunting for kites again yesterday, but only found one around (there are usually 3). Also found the remains of two birds. One of them was just a pile of white feathers (hopefully it isn't one of the white tail kites, even though they're the only birds in the area with that many white feathers) and the other was that of a turkey. After giving up on the WTK, headed back down to the pond, since that was the direction that a greater blue heron had flown in earlier. Didn't find it and went back on the trail bordering the pond and ran upon a great egret. Slowly sneaked up to the egret and then suddenly heard an agitated sound up in the trees. Well what would you know, but it was the great blue that I had seen earlier. That was about as close as I had ever been to a greater blue since they're usually quite skittish. This one didn't mind me at all and just got back to pruning. Since the sun was about to set, it looks like both of these herons were gonna be roosting there for the night. The greater blue finally got tired of pruning and looks like it started to settle in for the night.
