I could see from the window clouds were bubbling up into white mountains, so I went out to see if one was a rain cloud with my name on it! Just goes to show You that You may go out with one thing on your mind and discover something else instead! While scanning the sky for my rain cloud, I spotted a spotted bird! Wow oh wow!!! A baby Mississippi Kite (juvenile). These photos in your photostudy tonight confirm that the Kites are breeding here on my Rainbow Creek. Citizen sightings and documentation like mine help the Scientists learn more about the range of species as well as many other things like my focus: behavior.
For example, I do not have one picture of one beautiful baby Kite. I have a photo history of all the Kites in this area since they arrived in Spring, via this Nature Blog. I encourage all of You to document the living things in your area (and put it online) to help in the effort to better understand all life on Earth. So a little stroll through my beautiful clouds on this day-then on to the Feature Attraction of the baby Kite! Enjoy!
Hello World, I am new on Earth. I am a Kite!

...this is brendasue signing off from Rainbow Creek. See You next time! The fall migration for the Ruby Throated Hummingbird is in progress!!!! They are coming in. At first they stay high in the tall trees. They are beginning to choose the feeders they will guard. And, the chase is on! They are wooshing through the yard at the speed of light chasing each other. I got a few in the hiding places. They are hard to see in the trees!
