They're back!

This time of year I find myself glancing skyward more regularly and my ears are tuned for a particular sound. Can you guess whose arrival I am awaiting???

Swallow-tailed kites! These beautiful birds are summer migrants that come up from South America. And I am happy to say while I have yet to see one, I did hear two calling out on Panther Island earlier today! Awesome Valentine's Day gift from Mother Nature!
