Swallow-tailed Kite Patch


Product Details

#21 Swallow-tailed Kite

These graceful, buoyant black-and-white birds of prey are summer visitors to cypress swamps and open pine woods in the Southeast, where they raise their young before migrating to South America. A joy to watch, Swallow-tailed Kites use their deeply-forked tail to twist, swoop and glide in the sky, catching small animals and insects on the wing.
