This rainbow raptor is called a kite. Like eagles and hawks, kites are birds of prey.
A variety of raptors hover and soar above our neighborhood here in northwest Oregon. We have even seen a bald eagle fly to a nest on top of a nearby cell phone tower; this will explain the upcoming sightings of two headed birds.
And here are some batiks that don't fly; they didn't
make the cut.
A couple of them look okay from this viewpoint, but they are not okay - most have holes in them, some are unable to be cropped to fit standard mats, and some my own family does not even want.
So, compliments of my daughter, here is a very short video consistent with the theme of flight. You might want to turn down the volume on your computer.
