Hi Folks

After a trip with Cub & Joey Scouts to the Air Traffic Control Tower & Fire Station on Monday morning decided to park under the main runway incoming flight path looking for metallic birds.

Found the following raptor - but it was up too high or distant most of the time to get a good lock - even with a 50X zoom. Thought it might be a raptor (considering the stoop position) and maybe even a kite (whistling or otherwise) but haven't had the time to pore over my guide books & apps in detail.

So a simple fun puzzle for your Avian Aficionados.
