I don't blame mommy and daddy Kites for trying to protect their little one. He is a cute little thing.

His parents have been doing an excellent job caring for him. Here, the female keeps a close eye on me as she heads out to get the second course of her little one's dinner. Those are some formidable looking talons!
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.
