Mississippi Kite in florida 2015

One of my favourite kites is the Mississippi Kites.  I had never seen on until we visited the Avian Reconditioning Centre in Florida.  As part of their fund-raising they do photo workshops so people can view the educational birds but at the same time learn more about them.  For more  information  or to book a session in Apopka Florida check out the website www.arc4raptors.com



I had no idea what the kite was going to look like but it was omg look at that face.  Stunning bird.  They are about 7.5 to 13.5 ounces with a wingspan of 3 feet.  I was sure they would be double that size.
