Female Mississippi Kite

This is the female Mississippi Kite that I observed involved in copulation yesterday in Lamar. It is easier to differentiate females from males due to position in copulation than to do so from very subtle differences in plumage between them.

Mississippi Kites are not only acrobatic flyers but quite graceful. Read more about them at Cornell Lab's website
