I visited Charlie Elliott WMA this afternoon in search of kites. I was
rewarded by kettles of Mississippi Kites (27 in view at one time) but not a
single Swallow-tailed. The Mississippi Kites were over the fields right at
the CEWMA entrance and also north all the way to Mansfield. As Mark Freeman
reported yesterday regarding his Clarke County flock, many were immatures.
I was there from about 1:00 until 2:30 PM.
An interesting / unusual sighting was a Kestrel just north of the city
limits of Mansfield.
I also birded E. L. Huie and the Newman Wetlands Area this morning. Huie
was loaded with Great and Snowy Egrets and Great Blue, Little Blue and Green
Herons, along with three Ospreys and a couple of Common Moorhens. I did not
find the White Ibis that was seen yesterday.
It's hot, but not too hot to bird (is it ever?)
