Mississippi Kite

May brings the return of the Mississippi Kites to the panhandle. These two will be raising young before long. They have mated, and I can only hope that they will nest nearby.



  1. Great pic! I hope to see some of these when I'm in Texas, but I'll be in the Hill Country. I hope they go that far south....

  2. Do you have any more photos that show more of the bird in the back. There is a small possibility that the back bird is a White-tailed Kite (previously Black-shouldered Kite). Notice the whiter head that contrasts with the dark shoulder. This could also be a trick of the light.
