#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.

Bird Collective will donate 20% of the profits from this patch to support Alabama Audubon’s conservation work in one of America’s most biodiverse states.

Dimensions: 2.1" wide x 2.5" tall
