Your Best or Favorite Photo of a Bird Species.

Mississippi.  Lexington County, central SC, July 2019.  I was on my way home from a hot spot and thought I'd take a shortcut.  The bird was perched 25 feet or so above someone's driveway.  The homeowner wondered why I was parked in front of his house...

I have seen 3 different species of Kite and have photos of all of them so the choice came down to this one because no one else had posted Snail Kite yet. @Johnd I'm jealous of your White-tailed Kite. I don't have it yet. Was hoping to find one last week while in south Florida alas is was not to be.

(I did see a swallow-tailed kite once in Florida)

Do you have any other shots of this Kite? Perhaps an angle that shows the necessary 'Made in Canada or Made in USA' markings to prove it's a North American kite? 😜

Great shot.  I forgot Snail Kite.  I have a better shot of Snail Kite than the Swallow-tailed I posted.

They are uncommon in South Florida but there is one area in Monroe County where they get reported often. We went by the area but didn't stop to bird. The one bad thing about vacationing with our granddaughter. She is not into birds so our time gets spent mostly keeping her entertained.
