White-tailed Kite

White-tailed Kite
Vine Hill, California, USA
Member of the Kites, Eagles, and Hawks Family
§A Kettle of Kites§

*true kite fact* The children's toy, kite, is named for these birds. Maybe this is obvious, but I had a bit of an 'ah-ha' moment here.

*true White-tailed Kite fact* Despite scientists' best efforts, they are unable to determine whether White-tailed Kites are migratory or nomadic birds or what. Basically they don't know a thing! Nature is a wonderful mystery.

Has relationships and friendships that are intense, but brief
Capricious, tends to move around a lot
Gets into tortured, artistic moods about things that don't effect her personally, like Tibet
Baffling. You will often not want to deal with her if you've already had a hard day. A lot to deal with that you don't need right now, frankly.
May be kind of like a trial by fire, in bird form
