White-tailed Kites – Adults

The Lake Los Carneros kites have been putting on a fantastic show recently and the adults have successfully fledged three more youngsters.  They started flying two weekends ago and at first only two were in the air, but by the end of that weekend all three had taken to the sky.  The new nest is in a great location for photography and I’ve been out taking advantage of the interesting skies, courtesy of the La Brea fire, and the cooperative birds.  I’ll post photos of the fledglings in my next update.
