Kite update on Friday, 8/22

The 2 adult Mississippi Kites were still present at Bloom School at 1:30-2:00 p.m. this afternoon. Also flying over in the vicinity was an adult Broad-winged Hawk and a distant Red-tailed Hawk. Yesterday, an immature Broad-winged Hawk was haunting the nearby trees along Westchester Drive, and a kestrel flew through. The kites are still very vocal, particularly when another raptor, like a Cooper’s Hawk or a Broad-winged, fly too close.
