Thanks! The kite population has rebounded nicely out here. I never saw them as a kid, but now they are pretty common. We also have a lot of Northern Harriers, which I take a lot of pics of as well.
Here is something a little less common, at least in the daytime. A barn own taking his supper back to the nest. Taken at dusk at ISO 8000, 400mm f5.6, 1/1000 sec.
