Another Endangered Snail Kite , from my outing with Ron from http://www.whistlingwingsphotography.com/! We had fantastic afternoon, a few pairs of these beautiful birds were foraging for snails, and this male banked right in front of us.. so you know the rest.. here he is! What a thriller to observe their natural behavior in their ever shrinking marsh lands. Conservation of these wetlands, along with their only food source, "Snails" is an urgent issue !!!, Ron is a pleasure to tour with, and his knowledge of Avian water fowl is supreme, not too mention his mad BIF Photography skills. Happy Monday... Off to work go, cause i need a Canon 1D MKIV :) :) Please click on the photo to observe.
