To kick off we have a nice shot of a soaring Mississippi Kite (Ictinia mississippiensis) captured as it soared over an artillery emplacement on Vicksburg’s National Military Park. There were a pair wheeling and soaring about in the company of a hawk in the late afternoon sunshine, much to the admiration of the human visitors.
