Hi All,

My sister Stephanie Johnson and I arrived at about noon today and were able to observe The Kite constantly until about 1:15 or so! Between all of today's reports the bird was seen off and on from 10:15am until at least 3:15pm, Wow!

If you want to see some great Georgia Swallow-tailed Kite (STKI) photos you should check out Bob Zaremba's Georgia Year List-2007 page on Bob & Deb Zaremba's Georgia Birding site at:

Look under the June 9th section for definitive proof that Swallow-taileds take bats!

Reading Bob's account of his record-setting Georgia Big Year in 2007 is a great and thrilling education on birding Georgia!

Also the Zaremba's Georgia Birding main page is located at:

This site is a wealth of Georgia birding information and should be better known!

Also very interesting is information concerning the Georgia DNR's Swallow- tailed Kite Monitoring Project located at:

With possibly only 100-150 breeding pairs of STKI in Georgia it's a wonder we see them at all!

Good Birding All!
