After the fifth time in a few years, I finally got to see my first Mississippi Kite in St. David, AZ. They're a local summer resident here along the lower San Pedro River. As I drove to the area where they're known to hang out, I saw a single bird soaring high in the sky. I barely had enough time to snap a few distant photos as it flew out of sight. If I had been one minute later, I would have missed it. Lucky ducky.
