Swallow-tailed Kite

There is a nest located by the Post office on Sanibel and I've made a point of checking it from time to time. Well, it looks like the young one will be flying the coop real soon.
But first I wanted to check on the tree that sits behind the Over Easy Cafe where many Swallow-tailed Kites have been roosting - this morning was as usual.

Here's the young kite - you can tell from his buffy colored feathers.

It practiced flapping its wings several times

When others would fly overhead - it would watch intently

It won't be long before it is soaring and gliding too.
