The Mississippi Kite is probably one of my favorite raptors (owls top the list of course). You can often find them perched on bare tree branches in the morning waiting for thermals to develop so that they can soar, which they can do for long periods. #raptor #mississippikite #kite #wildlifephotography #wildlife #blackandwhitephotography #nature #beautiful #texas #westtexas #photooftheday #birdsofprey #birdphotography #nikon

Scroll to see all three photos. What did you do yesterday that made you happy? Did you do something special? Relaxing? Thought-provoking? Fun? I thought about loved ones including family, friends, colleagues, students and others who have come into my life. I was fortunate enough to have spent the day with Susan & Jon Wood (Nikon Raptor Project) and their artist daughter Rachel. We “flew and threw” birds and Frisbees, respectively! Jon flew his young Mississippi Kite in training and Susan threw the Frisbee for their enthusiastic long-haired Whippet, Cocoa. I hope your day was as fun, relaxing, special and thought-provoking as mine... . . . . #elite_raptors #kite #mississippikite #raptor #raptors #whippet #longhair #training #fun #relaxing #relax #inspire_nature_now #inspire_texas_now #texas #kings_birds #bird_brilliance #eye_spy_birds #bns_birds #feather_perfection #birds_adored #pocket_birds #planetbirds #thebirdingsquad #birdsandblooms #birdsonearth #birds_illife #sassy_birds #birds_captures #birdfreaks

Yesterday’s carnage. And these are only the ones I got pictures of. These hens are our pets; we’ve had them since they were hatched. And it will happen again today. Red tail hawks and Mississippi kites are the assassins. They are protected birds so there’s not much we can do. And they aren’t afraid of us. They know they can just sit high above our reach in the trees and wait until we turn our backs. ☹️ Eat the whole thing so you’re not hungry again tomorrow! #chickens #hens #chicks #farm #farmlife #texas #bauer #bauern #henne #birds #vogel #predator #pets #chickencoop #coop #chickenhouse #redtail #redtailhawk #mississippikite #hawk #hawks #feathers #country #countrylife #eggs #eier #birdskillingbirds

Miki, a Mississippi Kite, at the Ojai Raptor Center. He had a broken leg and now cannot survive as a hunter in the wild. #ojai #mississippikite #kite #birdofprey #ojairaptorcenter #birdsanctuary #preserve #raptor #californiatravel #southerncaliforniaphotographer #visitcalifornia #venturacounty

Playing peekaboo with a Mississippi Kite. Normally this fella would sit on one of the many bare branches in the pecan trees. I don't know why he decided to go two trees down from his normal perch. I guess it's the restless nature. #peekaboo #kite #mississippikite #smallhawk #smallraptor #hawkwithwhitehead #texas #seymourtexas #seymourtx #follow #followforfollow #follow4follow #BaylorCounty #Texas #SeymourTexas #photography #ilovetexas #visittexas #instagramtexas #texaspride #texaslife #igtexas #texasforever #texas_ig #texasgram #texashillcountry #lonestarstate #texasphotography #txig #snaptexas

Just a few of the amazing characters we were able to meet today while visiting the @ojairaptorcenter!!! Thank you to all of those who joined us today on our first field trip of the year! The Ojai Raptor Center focuses on rehabbing and releasing all sorts of wildlife but in particular our local raptor species. Falcons, kites, owls, hawks, and eagles call SoCal home. The major issues occur when we encroach on their habitat. Often vehicle strike, power lines, and even shooting cause problems for these magnificent predators. Thank you so much for having us today! We all had a blast🦅🌎💙 Photos by @adam_ernster••• . . . . . . #WesternScreechOwl #Owl #Falcon #MississippiKite #BarnOwl #BirdsOfPrey #OjaiRaptorCenter #Raptor #Wildlife #WildlifeRehabilitation #Wildlifephotography #Nature #NaturePhotography

... Oh go fly a kite :) . The only kite that hangs out in flocks. They feed mainly on insects and are not territorial. After rearing their chicks they fly all the way to South America for the winter. They look so beautiful in flight. . #kite #mississippikite #exciting

Peregrine Falcon taking off. Did you know that Peregrine Falcons are similar in size to Mississippi Kites, but weigh 2-3x more? #Mississippikite #mississippi #kite #peregrinefalcon #peregrine #falcon #wildlifebiologist #wildlife #biologist #raptors #raptor #birdsofprey #bird #birds #birdsofinstagram #falconsofinstagram #raptorsofinstagram #nature

Juvenile Mississippi Kite brought into Hagerman Wildlife Refuge a couple of weeks ago. Drove him down to the raptor rescue in Allen, Tx where he was the 9th intake that day (24 kites in house total). It takes a few days for these guys to learn to fly, and right before migration they face a short learning stage. He was lethargic and underweight, possibly dealing with infection or parasites, but he’s in good hands. Hoping to hear a follow up soon. . . . . . . . . . . #mymklife #kite #mississippikite #raptor #birdsofinstagram #bird #birds #birdofprey #txwildlife #texas #texaswildlife #countrygirl #lakelife #wildliferehab #birdrescue #txgirl #laketexoma #hagerman #hagermannationalwildliferefuge

We’ve been caring for several juvenile Mississippi kites this summer, but this one is an adult, brought to us by U.S. Fish and Wildlife. It appears somebody shot this small raptor. He hasn’t wanted to eat, so today we made him into a “birdie burrito” so we could feed him. These birds normally hunt and eat on the fly, so he’s not happy with room service. Look at his striking red eyes. UPDATE: released back into the wild 9-6-18. #wildliferehabilitation #wildlife #raptor #kite #mississippikite

The Mississippi Kite is a summer visitor here to Oklahoma. They will start migrating south in September back to South America. They will winter there and the migrate back north towards Oklahoma and Texas for the summer. . . . #mississippikite #birding #birdnerd #birdwatching #birdphotography #backyardbirds #birdwatchers #audubon #audubonsociety #raptor #birdofprey #nature #naturephotography #wildlifephotography #wildlife #outdoors #outdoorphotography #myoklahoma #oklahomaoutdoors #outdoorok #oklahomabirds

You will need to enlarge this pic and look closely (some are preening and look like part of the dead tree), but early this morning we had 16 Mississippi Kites gathered in this dead tree and even more on nearby wires. They are grouping in preparation for their migration south to central South America for winter. We love seeing special wildlife gatherings or appearances on our farm and are happy to be an “Air B & B” just for them. 😃🕊👩🏻‍🌾👨🏻‍🌾 #wildlife #migration #MississippiKite #Oklahoma #homesweethome #farmlife #countrylife #homesteadlife #hiscreations #blessedwifemomgrandma #endofsummer2018

I sure thought I had a Bald Eagle, never having seen one in the wild before. Many, more educated than me, said it was a Mississippi Kite. I lightened up the image to reveal its true colors. #lakelewisville #llela #mississippikite #birder

So I went back out early this morning and got shots from a different angle...I was rewarded by seeing the adult Mississippi Kites fly in several times for a drop off feeding. In this instance, Cicada was on the menu! bzzzzzowbzzzzzowbzzzzzow (and on and on and on) I also have some video, I'll have to see if I can upload it here or maybe in my story.

Here's a frame with one of the Mississippi Kite adults landing in the tree the juveniles were in - it is about to hand off the dragonfly/cicada in it's beak to the young bird.

I found the kites! I found the kites! 3 juveniles and one adult Mississippi Kite were seen today, by me. I think I'm a little pumped up because I didn't search on ebird and nobody told me where to look. I tracked them down myself! 😎 Of course, if I had focused a little bit more, it might not have taken me all summer to find them, but now I know that this may well be a new nesting site for them - and next year I'll know where to go when they migrate back to here!
