The Mississippi Kite at Great Pond in Simsbury put on a great show this morning from 10AM until just about 10:30AM, when I left. Besides swooping and diving at dragonflies, the bird also interacted with 2 Red-Shouldered Hawks, and was dived on by 2 Eastern Kingbirds. The Kite was successful at least once with picking up Dragonflies.  For those on Facebook, there are a couple of new pictures showing the Kite in all of it's glory.
