    This guy has been hanging around for quite some time in my front yard. The Mississippi Kites do not like having him around and I often see them chasing him.

    Thank you both for your kind comments. He is very pretty and I love watching him. He once sat there for almost 30 minutes. I have a bunny in our yard that has been here for over a month and the other day I saw him eyeing it out but he did not make any attempts to catch it. Hope he never does.

    Thanks Andy and Dave. Yes, we are very fortunate to have these birds right in our back yard. There were a breeding pair of Kites and Hawks this year.

  11. Very nice, Yvette. The hawks are fun to watch. I like #3 looking through the leaves and #2 is very nice, also.

    Beauties Yvette. I'm so envious of all you Florida shooters. I hope that I can get down there later in the summer.

    :smile: I was also wondering why he was sitting like that - especially since at the time he was eyeing out the bunny. Guess his stomach was full.

    Thank you. Appreciate you looking.

    Thanks Frank. Come on down. We are very lucky to have the wildlife that we do. It is a great place to live.
