I'm ever so jealous of your White-tailed Kite. Did you see it while you were in Florida recently? If yes where?

No, the White-tailed Kite was from here in Calif. I've never seen one while I was in Fla. I did see lots of Swallow-tailed Kites while I was down there, though.

It's interesting, as a side note, that I was raised in Fla. (1957-1973) and never saw a Swallow-tailed during that entire time. They just weren't around N Fla. way back then.

I guess the Swallow-tailed expanded their territory then. Were you a birder then? We get them right over the house and we are extreme north FL. Super cool kite to see. They are huge compared to the Snail and especially the Mississippi Kite. We also get Mississippi over the house.
