Swallow-tailed Kites Return

Today I found three Swallow-tailed Kites near Jay Blanchard Park (actually in an abandoned horse farm behind my church parking lot). One of them flew pretty close to me. I suppose they’re creatures of habit, since I used to see them last year roosting in a tree right where these were flying.

But these weren’t the only fun birds to be seen today. I also found a nice American Kestrel, and one of many Yellow-rumped Warblers there posed for a picture.
