Hi All,

The White-tailed Kite has been bar hopping all day according to three New Hampshire birders I just spoke with.  The kite is sitting on the outer most bar towards Stratford and can be seen from Milford Point by walking out to the beach and then west along the shore to the first bench on the right. Look southwest towards Stratford Point.  The bird is on the last bar out on the left hand side but is difficult to see with the heat haze. The tide is rising; high is at 5:40 and that bar will go under water.. so it may move to the Piping Plover bar farther to the east and close to the observation platform at the end of the boardwalk. A Royal Tern and a Black Skimmer were also reported. Good luck..  Frank Gallo

Various reports of the White-tailed Kite sitting on a sand bar near Milford
oint, though moments ago I was told a couple of people walking out there
not birders) flushed it off. There are so many gulls and terns that
ombined with the heat haze it is tough to spot. We will keep looking. I am
ure it is somewhere right under our noses.
