CMBO Cape May Point walk and..........Swallow-tailed Kite

A Swallow-tailed Kite was seen from the back side of the second field at Higbee at approximately 10:00 am this morning. Anyone birding Cape May today should be on the look out for this bird!!!! When the bird was first observed it was headed in the direction of the Delaware Bay so there is a very good possibility it could be hanging around Cape May.

The Swallow-tailed Kite was seen again, from the second tower field at Higbee, as well as at least two Mississippi Kites at approximately 11:00 - 11:30 a.m. More to come as more reports are received.
