What is he eating?
A young dove that was picked out of the nest. They eat on the fly!
I don't know about FL but in GA the game wardens want you to report it if you spot one. I've never seen one in S GA.
we had good numbers 2 years ago, more than i have ever seen concentrated........... got to watch a lot of their feeding activity & learned a lot about them. only seen a couple this year & no photo ops. such cool birds- i miss them.this one just snatched a frog out of the tree top (from 2016)

That just seems like a weird thing to say. Yeah, I get it, the bird population is down 90%. It just sounds funny like if I see a bird sitting on my fence, my grand parents would have seen 10 sitting there.
I'm seeing a lot more Swallowtail Kites in Polk & Hillsborough than in years past. Not sure if pop is expanding or what. Must be a count somewhere that sheds some light on population numbers. I hear Everglades Kites are actually being seen a lot more on the Kissimmee River south of Orlando expanding range. One species I'm seeing more of than when I was a kid is the Sandhill Cranes. BTW - great pics of the buntings!
God sleeps in the minerals, awakens in plants, walks in animals, and thinks in man.
Saw one cruising the Wakula River back in April. They are for sure beautiful birds. Love to watch them.
