This morning I had an appointment in Osceola County, so I decided to go early down to East Lake Tohopekaliga to see if I could find any Snail Kites. I stopped near Crabby Bills and walked along the south side of the lake. I got there around 8:15am and saw none for a while, but just before 9am, I saw four that "congregated" high above my head. After about a minute or so, one of them flew west and the the other three headed east. I followed the three toward the east, and one of them flew by me relatively close a couple times. It's hard to know for sure, but I think I have photos of at least three of the four that I saw.
I have yet to see a Snail Kite in person. How lucky you are to see four at one time! Glorious photographs!ReplyDelete
