Mississippi Kite

These beautiful Mississippi Kites visit my friends backyard every summer for mating season. They are small birds of prey and are a hawk. Love their black-grey color combination. Very beautiful bird. I have never seen one. Only sparrows, mockingbirds and cowbirds seem to park themselves at the farm! Thanks to E.S. for these amazing photos for me to post! She always has the best photos of wildlife and she lives smack in the middle of a large city!
