This Mississippi Kite was spotted at the top of a Red Oak on the North Forest Trail just across from the dining area of “High South on a Roll”. Dave and Debbie Shallenberg of Rogers, who had been viewing and photographing a doe and her two fawns, kindly provided this image.
The Kite seemed comfortable with our presence. A Blue-gray Gnatcatcher paid a brief, non-confrontational visit. After making a few excursions from its perch, the Kite took a short flight to denser cover.
