Mississippi Kites; Beanery Notes

5 Mississippi Kites were found today by Harvey Tomlinson in the vicinity of the Mt. Zion Cemetery, along Shunpike Road in West Cape May. He reports that two of the birds were perched for a while.

Karl Lukens' report from the Beanery/Rea Farm this morning also included a Mississippi Kite, in addition to the following: "...Again before we got to the gate we had the Indigo Bunting and a female Blue Grosbeak. Later we had a good view of both the male and female grosbeaks. Also nice looks at a Green Heron and Black-crowned Night-Heron. ..."
