My last post shared my added lifer, #202 the Burrowing Owl, from yesterday morning.
Would you believe I saw another lifer within a half hour of the Burrowing Owl? I did!! 😊
Welcome to my lifer list, #203 the Swallow-tailed Kite! I have seen these beautiful aerial acrobats in flight several times in the last couple months but was never able to stop and get a photograph.
This time a Swallow-tailed Kite wasn’t in flight, but perched right alongside the road for me to see AND where there was ample space to pull over. My adrenaline was a-pumping!
The kite was performing it’s morning yoga wing stretching……
….fluffin’ up and tail stretching.
I departed with a big thank you and huge smile, leaving the Swallow-tailed Kite to its morning ritual.
Two new lifers within a half hour, what a great morning!
