White-tailed Kite video

Here's a short video that I took today at Bolsa Chica of a hovering White-tailed Kite. It spent several minutes on end hovering, so I was able to digiscope some shots of it and also get this video, which I took through the scope. After several minutes of hovering, it suddenly swooped down and nabbed a small rodent! It carried the prey to a nearby perch, where it quickly gobbled it down - I'll spare you from the gory details. Enjoy!

Whoa, that's crazy. You should send it to the Internet Bird Collection, that's not something you see every da y!
