Swallow-tailed kites above the trail at Myakka

We started out biking Fox’s High Road through the wide, open pines and scrub, where we saw a pair of swallow-tailed kites soaring above.DCIM103GOPRO

I wasn’t able to get photos of these graceful birds of prey before they were just two circling specks.

And then we trekked over to the river’s birdwalk where we saw this doe.DSC_0152

During our next trek at Myakka State Park, we’ll be looking up, waiting for another glimpse of the distinctive black and white swallow-tailed kites.
