Fernandina Beach, Amelia Island:  Several Swallow-tailed Kites appeared over
our residence mid-morning. The group included one fledged juvenile
indicating successful nesting for at least one pair. The kites were at
tree-top level and drifting in and out of view while I anxiously attempted
to photograph them at point blank range. The juvenile appeared with a small
twig in its talons. Alas, as is typical for such events, the entire group
moved off within a few minutes of arrival.  Any species of kite is rare
right on the coast, so a small flock is a real treat here. (Below is a link
