Mississippi Kite

Today off of Citrus Blvd, I noticed about eight Mississippi Kites circling low and flying over a big grassy lot.  I tried to figure out what they were eating and the picture I got of the juvenile looks like they were eating bees!
These are usually birds I see circling high above, so I was tickled to have them swooping all around me :D
