The Mississippi Kites seem to have headed south in the last week or so, although I did see one up at Palo Duro Reservoir two days ago. I’m a little sad to see them go-I always enjoy watching them raise their chicks. To make their going a bit easier, I spotted the first of the Northern Harriers on the same day. Unfortunately I was unable to get a photo of either of them.
But as a consolation for missing those two shots, I was able to get several nice photographs of several other raptors this week.
