The Screaming

Black-shouldered kite

Elanus axillaris 

I could hear this young black-shouldered kite calling all morning from its perch on our TV antenna. Eventually I went outside with my camera and as I did so, its parent came up behind me. The young kite took off screaming for food, looking in my direction. Some days you get lucky.
