Black-shouldered Kite: Coming in at Speed
Black-shouldered Kite, Elanus axillaris
This is one of my 'grinningest :-)' moments with these little kites so far.
This one is coming down from high up, wings tucked in for speed, yet still able to control descent and direction.
A week ago, it could hardly fly in a straight line.
How quickly they gain the skills.
