Mississippi Kite, Brooksville - May 14, 2016

10 months ago I photographed a Mississippi Kite release at this location, where an adult and juvenile were released.  The location was suggested for the release because a Mississippi Kite had been seen here a previous year (for several weeks) by other birders, and it is very unusual to see one in this region. 

Today, I saw my first wild Mississippi Kite (even if it might be the one from last year).  He was soaring pretty high, so the photos are not great, but definitely good ID shots.
