Birds of Panama - large bird
The Swallow-tailed Kite
(Elanoides forficatus) breeds from
the southeastern United States to

Most North and Central American
breeders winter in South America
where the species is resident year
round. The Swallow-tailed Kite feeds
on small reptiles, such as snakes
and lizards. It may also feed on
small amphibians such as frogs;
large insects, such as grasshoppers,
crickets; small birds and eggs; and
small mammals. It drinks by skimming
the surface in flight and collecting
water in its beak.
