Subject: [NEBirds] Mississippi Kites
At 6:30 this evening while sitting on my parents' front porch, I was very surprised to see a pair of Mississippi Kites fly over and land in the cottonwood tree across the street. The pair stayed for about 30 minutes, either perched in the tree or flying over the area. While we watched them, at least one bird was successful in catching insects several times. The pair eventually flew off to the northwest with the second bird being chased off by one of the resident Red-tailed Hawks.
