World Bird- the Kite

The pair of kites have built a nest on top of a silver oak tree in my school, and the female is brooding in the nest. The male kite flies out and came back every ten minutes, with a tasty snack like rats or an occasional snake to feed his mate.
After some time, it became too hot for the small creatures to run around in the sun, and the kite took longer and longer to find food.
The missus became tired of waiting, and decided to take a nap.
There she is, taking a mid-morning snooze.
