Mississippi Kite

For days, we've been hearing a young Kite bawling quite often. We had a good idea where he was, but couldn't see him. I finally saw where he was yesterday. It seems they have a nest in a neighbor's tree that hangs over our driveway. It shouldn't be long before he tries his wings out.

Momma keeps a watchful eye on her little one.

I know he's being taken care of, because his momma was in the Elm in our back yard preparing a meal for him. I watched as she flew in and served his dinner.
