Mississippi Kite

Okay, go past the bank and turn right at the car wash, then the next left. I don’t usually get too fired up about this kind of urban exploration, but I received directions to the nearest Mississippi Kite, a rare bird for these parts, from a fellow at the Celery Bog so I thought, why not cruise through the neighborhood and see what we see. Great directions! There they are in the dead tree on the corner. The first thing I noticed was that magnificent tail, but when he gave me a mid-air, hovering head tilt I was so glad I set out on this adventure!
