White-tailed Kites nest in a variety of coastal prairie and open habitats throughout their range, and in late summer through winter can be seen in rather large concentrations near communal roost sites, and in places where foraging is good. They are often seen in association with Northern Harriers, as the two feed on the same prey and occupy the same habitats. Can you find the Northern Harrier in this plate from The Crossley ID Guide: Raptors?
