Let’s go fly a kite

The Smithsonian's Kite Festival is today. Head on down to the Washington Monument and check it out. You might even see a kite like the one pictured below, from the Libraries' digital collection, Ornithologie (1773-1792) by François Nicolas Martinet [Histoire des Oiseaux Peints dans Tous Leurs Aspects Apparents et Sensibles] [Ornithology], 1773-1792. —Elizabeth Periale

  1. Yeah, I attended the Kite Festival but I haven’t seen a kite like this bird. I enjoyed watching my son joined the competition, we had so much fun.

  2. It was an amazing article! A writer like you should be given credit for your dedication to work as your provide good quality articles with the good purpose. I like to read such articles for they tackle different issues in our society as well as different practicalities and knowledge that a certain person should or must know. I will keep reading your next post that will be an interesting article again as usual.
