>The White-tailed Kite soared over Short Beach and went up the Housatonic River a bit about 30 minutes ago. Earlier it had gone to the landfill behind Short Beach and then returned to the Stratford Point property. It may very well return, but I simply wanted to say that it has been out of sight for a while now. There are a lot of good hunting spots nearby (landfill, the airport, the marsh, etc.). We shall see.

>We have a report that the White-tailed Kite was seen near Dunkin Donuts and the commercial complex next to Frash Pond, still in Stratford not far away. We surmised it could be in the Stratford Great Meadows IBA and it seems that it has moved there to hunt. That is likely your best bet at the moment. I and others will remain and watch at Stratford Point.

>The bird is here after having left once again and has been for about 30 minutes. I will be closing the gate very soon so if you want to be able to drive/walk in easily come now. It is constantly being attacked by Common Terns. It was seen before at Frash Pond and the airport so check other locations as well. You don't have to be inside the point to see it as it is frequently hovering or sometimes perched in trees.
