Thanks Daniela. Glad to hear you got to see Swallow-tailed Kites in Argentina. They're so graceful in flight.

Wonderful Spotting! These birds reach northern Argentina and last Spring I could see a pair of them flying around my area. It´s really nice to have them also here.

Must be nice! They're in south Texas but are pretty hard to come by

Thanks Ashley. Southern Florida is the place to see these birds. In the week, I saw at least a dozen of them.
