Recent USA and North American Trips 5/3/22 to 5/14/22

5/10/22 and 5/11/22 and 5/14/22 Yulee, FL: Bill George, head of the Amelia Island Bird Club, gave us a head’s up about some Mississippi Kites in his area and we were able to run over and try for the birds. This was a restricted area. The angles and trees were tough, but it was sure fun trying to capture them before they flew up high to feed. The second day we had a better angle. The third time we caught some different looks. They were beautiful to see! Thanks, Bill!
