Mississippi kite with nesting material

Post on May 19, 2013 Mississippi Kite Kite BirdsRaptor


The Mississippi kites have returned to Dalworthington Gardens, Pappy Elkins Park. One of the nesting pair has claimed an old nest and started the mating progress already. The couple consummate and the male would present its partner a catch or two, occasional pick up nesting material. He only does that once or twice in the morning, so that’s quite a rare moment.
