White-tailed Kite

The white tailed kite is a raptor that is more common in the central valley and along the coast. It is very acrobatic and has the ability to hover in place when hunting . It is probably closer in size to a falcon then a red-tailed hawk, and slimmer but the distinct coloring and ability to hover makes it easy to identify. A very pretty bird and enjoyable to watch in flight. Stay healthy.
