Ladies and Gentlemen,

I present you with the seldom seen and rarely photographed Charlie brownis Kite. It was such a treat to observe on of these in its natural habitat...

Yeah, most of them I've seen are soaring too high to get a good shot of!!

Hmmmmm...... pink is for girl birds? It's interesting how they sit in the tree with the tail perkily tilted upright. I wonder if any are found with tail hanging down.

Usually it's the males that are more colorful.

I used to have one in my backyard for years. It seemed to favor a Silver Maple tree. Sadly, I never got any pictures and it hasn't been back this year. :)
