Swallow-tailed Kites - wklein

Prior to migrating back to South America, Swallowed-tailed kites group together in large numbers. These pictured here are part of one of those groups.  Each day these birds will leave the roost and soar above it in large groups. Prior to joining the soaring birds some will skim across the water to take a drink and/or bath, as you will see in some of my photos. So cool to watch and photographed.
