Hook-billed Kite at Anzalduas County Park, 1/18/09

I ran into JD Cortez this morning At Anzaldulas County Park south of Mission in Hidalgo County. We did a couple of laps around the park finally picking up the wintering Prairie Warbler, a female Black-throated Gray Warbler, a couple of Northern Beardless Tyrannulets and a couple of Pine Siskins. So we were doing pretty good when a floppy-winged raptor approached us. We enjoyed great looks a this Hook-billed Kite. Notice how the bases of the winges are "pinched in" contrasting with the broad winges and tail.
