Mississippi Kite

Yes, Kites are nesting nearby. This is one of the two or three pairs who have been hanging around the house. This is one of the females, and she is hauling construction materials for their new home. I believe this pair is building a nest in a neighbor's tree across the alley. I will be watching their activity.

This little lady was kind enough to take time out to pose for me while she was preening. Gorgeous, isn't she?
