These are Kites that were in a neighbors oak tree waiting on their parents to come by with their next meal...
I heard them calling for their parents from inside the house and ran out with my camera and was able to get a couple of good long range shots.

I was thinking it was kids and kites, but nope, the other kites. I like the first one, where they are looking off the same direction.
