The Kites have returned to Singingwood after a 3 week vacation somewhere – the nice weather must have brought out the voles, mice & gophers on the grassy slopes.

After all the rain we’ve had and the resulting lush grass crop, Looks like it’s going to be a good year for voles. The white-tailed kites obviously think so. Checkout what the kite on the left has clenched in it’s right foot. YUM! /Gary
