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?
This blog is intended to show the wide variety of birds we have coming, going, and residing in the Texas Panhandle. I consider it a challenge to personally photograph as many species and varieties of birds in the panhandle as I can as I go about my life. I will try to make entries as accurate as possible. I am a photographer, not a bird expert. Please feel free to correct me if any information I put here is in error. This is a work in progress. Enjoy our birds as I enjoy photographing them.
