Kites by mydigitalmind Kites by mydigitalmind
These Mississippi Kites are nesting far north of their range in upstate New York. I drove a total of five hours just to see them! They did not disappoint.

Wow five hours! But it was probably worth it I am sure. ;)

p.s U did quite well with the exposure, considering its prolly close to midday or so judging by the sunlight's angle.

Wow that is so awesome! I just read an article about their expanding range in Living Bird, how cool to see a picture illustrating it!

Yeah, we've been having some unique birds show up. I'm pretty sure Kites have been showing up at this one spot for a few years and had one failed nest before. they are hoping the pair is successful this year!
