Black-shouldered KIte: The Casual Approach

Black-shouldered Kite, Elanus axillaris

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

He is coming around in a fairly stiff breeze, and is using the wind to 'drift' into position for a landing on the nest.

Looks like a basketball player about to slam-dunk :-)

Making it look all too easy
