White Tailed kites / Juncos

While driving to Peveto this afternoon I noticed a couple of birds that appeared to be small gulls but they didn't fly like small gulls. They were dynamiic in flight and were some real flying machines. Then I understood. They were White-Tailed Kites. (LEFT CLICK TO ENLARGE ALL PICTURES)

These birds are fascinating to watch with their aerial acrobatics.

Taking pictures was much easier when they decided to take a break. These birds were a first for me and it was a privelege to watch them for a short time.

At Peveto, I ran into hard-working Dave Patton. He showed me where the Juncos were hanging out that Paul Conover spotted the day before.

These birds were a first for me as well and cool to observe. It was a great way to end a fun afternoon being out, watching birds and taking pictures.

  1. Great shots of the kite! You captured the ideal angle in the middle one - and with good lighting too!
