Swallow Tails

Published by at 7:30 am under Beyond Bounds


In March the cliff swallows come back to San Juan Capistrano and the swallow-tailed kites come back to Florida.

Swallow-tailed kites are graceful, strikingly beautiful, black and white raptors with long swallow tails who kite on the wind.

I have only seen one twice because I usually visit Florida when the kites are wintering in South America.

Read about their return to Florida on Chuck Tague’s March 8th blog.
