It was perfect temperature with only a bit of breeze. It was overcast so there wasn't great light.
On the way to the first bird blind, we heard, then saw this long-billed thrasher chortling away up in a tree.
Far away was this hovering bird. I first thought it was an osprey but the tail was too long and the head posture was different. After watching it for quite a while in our binoculars, we concluded that it was a white-tailed kite.
