The Hook-billed Kite has the smallest range in North America compared to all other kites found on the continent. It barely touches into the southeastern tip of Texas. As well as not being a common bird, it is that much more difficult to seek and find, because it prefers a habitat over wet areas and places not easy to observe them. It has been reported as a very rare visitor in Cuba.
