    I'm sorry how dumb of me not to properly name the bird:

    "White tail Kite" is how he/she is known here. They hunt by fluttering over an area just like kestrel's. Wonderful to watch. When they see there intended prey they dive down and nail them!!

    thank you for stopping by

  7. Ben, I like these shots a lot. Seems like the bird is just hanging there with no effort. Well taken images.

    Hi Ben

    These aren't nice...these are exceptional.

    I sure wish that we had kites up in my neck of the woods!

    Thanks Kevin
    They do put on quite show while hunting, love just watching them hover over the ground looking for something to pounce on.
