Wisconsin Life Bird Swallow Tailed Kite. This is an awesome find! Drew and I made our way up to Neshkoro, WI Saturday morning to find this beautiful bird that was reported there for the past 3 days.
While there, we met birders Pat Ready, Charles Henrickson and others. We scoped the bird flying around until it perched in a pine tree behind a red barn. The farmer invited us over to get a closer look and WOW! It stayed perched while it preened itself for a awhile... Then it took off, flying just a few yards over our heads! Magnificent looking bird! Stayed and enjoyed its acrobatic flying styles for about an hour before Drew and I took for Horicon Marsh.
