American swallow-tailed kite
Description: Many kites circle upward from their night's roost as they rise on air currents early in the morning. Hundreds of Swallow-tailed Kites gather each summer at roosts in Florida and fly up from their roosts on morning thermals to start their daily soaring for food. Here They are near the St. Johns River in Florida before they leave on their yearly journey to Brazil.
