Default Yearling Kite

Caught this subadult Mississippi Kite hanging out at the end of the driveway. She's really small even for a Kite, about the size of a mourning dove, our normal adults are at least twice this size maybe a big larger. I'm thinking she's just about 13 months old. She's got her gray coloring but still has brown underwings and white banded tail.

Very nice photos. I love watching these birds soaring and catching insects as they do so. It's rare to find them sitting long enough to catch a decent shot.
