Hook-billed Kites: an adult female light morph seen today
Today I returned to the Mission hike & bike trail area to look for the Hook-billed Kites again. I met Benton Basham there and a little later Bill Clark (raptor expert and book co-author)also showed up to took for the kites. I spotted a Hook-billed Kite fly in and land in a tree a couple of hundred feet away from us. After it perched for a few minutes it flew off. A little later Bill Clark spotted a second bird.
