lovely pair of white tailed kites perch in pine

White-tailed kites seem to be among the most gentle of all the local raptors; unless, of course, you are a vole! My friend, Andrea Erichsen enjoyed this recent photo. I first met Andrea when she was a grad student at UC Davis studying the roosting habits and habitat use by kites using radio telemetry; but now Andrea is far away working in a different kind of paradise on the Hawaiian Islands as a state-employee biologist.

Note: this photo, like all on the blog, can be enlarged for better detail by clicking on the image.
