Swallow-tailed Kites flying over the Cameron Preserve

A group of five Swallow-tailed Kites flying over the Cameron Preserve, in Brevard County, FL.

The shorter tailed individuals are likely juveniles. The adults have longer tails. No bands or tracking devices were visible.

These birds were seen this past Sunday (July 27, 2014) during my weekly birding hike. I’ll have some more to post about that later in the week.
