Hawks or Kites migrating

Recommended Posts

I saw these hawks flying through Austin, TX yesterday. They were far away, so I didn't get a good picture. I thought they were going to be broad-winged hawks, but now I think they are Mississippi Kites. What do you think? Thanks in advance for any advice.

This. In the third picture, you can see a white line that is separating the light part of the wing from dark part and in the link below the kite has that same white line. Also, that picture was taken in Texas in September just like your photo.
