I saw a new bird above my yard this past week. There were 2 of them soaring around on the air currents and also one sitting in a tree. I am going to be a bit different and post 2 photos in one day because both of them were from fairly far away. I could definitely tell this was a raptor of some sort and judging by it's looks and actions I believe these were Mississippi Kites. According to my book they are somewhat common in South Central Kansas but have been moving north.
