Black-shouldered KIte: ComeOn I'm Hungry

Black-shouldered KIte, Elanus axillaris

+=============+

This is the oldest of the three and is probably a female as she is much larger than the nearest sibling.

 

She hasn't been fed for awhile, but already has plenty of her mother's gene pool to call on.

She has just reached out and pecked at Bronson to get him on the move.

 

Wisely, he took the hint.
