While staying at Wilderness RV resort in Silver Springs, Florida,we were lucky enough to experience a Swallow-tailed Kite flying over the park. Then we noticed two Kite..
And just yesterday we saw this..
Nest building material!
It was fun to watch…we stayed for a half hour then continued our walk to the nearby restaurant for Sunday morning breakfast.The nest is being built close to the river…in the tallest pine tree, in back of a row of Motorhomes…Everyone was enjoying watching them…After breakfast Jeff and I went back and there was no sign of them..
We were told that a Red-shouldered Hawk dive bombed one of the Kite.
The Hawk was then surprised as the other Kite…went after him.
I did see one of the resident Pileated Woodpeckers.
The RV park is getting empty now…The snowbirds are starting their northward journeys back home for the summer..See our Homey at the far end of the RV park…Its time for our wheels to turn too!We are headed to North Carolina..for a months stay at Sickstas and Craigys.
This morning before we began our journey north, I went to see if the Kite had returned…
