An ornament in a tree - a White-tailed Kite
Allen Vinson noticed this White-tailed Kite perched on top a tree on The Sea Ranch. It almost looks like a hood ornament for a fancy car!
White-tailed Kites, Elanus leucurus, hunt for rodents in meadows and other open areas. They can been seen hovering in the air before they rush to the ground to snag their dinner. I have seen one hunting over the meadows of Gualala Point Regional Park.
Thanks to Allen for allowing me to share his photo with you here.
