Morning Greeter

Three Mississippi Kites greeted us this Sunday morning.  They perched atop one of the pines on the front of the property.  Of course, all took to flight when we disturbed them.  Yet, one returned and afforded us some great viewing and a photograph. 

These raptors have fascinated me since my college days.  They seem to give two looks at once: a bandit with penetrating red eyes and also a benign countenance.
