Snail Kite - female in Florida 2014

Female Snail Kite
Thank you our guide Kathryn Dow the first bird of the day was this amazing snail kite hunting.  The kite flew back and forth for us hunting for snails. 

Luckily for us the kite landed in a tree right beside us.

Food in talons.

Check out the size of the snail in his talons.

What a wonderful new bird of prey.  For a hour and a half at 7am in golden hour we enjoyed his hunting.
