Ouch.  I was probably one of those birders.  If this hadn't been so frustrating today, it would have made a great Benny Hill or Monty Python skit.
The good news is that many people had distant looks at this bird (albeit, sometimes briefly and from different locations), throughout the day.
I'm hoping to join the carnival again tomorrow.  Birder coverage should be excellent.

Bob Dewire was just in to the Coastal Center at 9:45 to tell me that he could see the White-tailed Kite from here. It was sitting mid-way up in an Ailanthus Tree (Tree of Heaven) on Short Beach near the water.  Birders were very close to it but apparently could not, or had not, seen it yet. It may be obscured by leaves..  Frank Gallo.. .  (ps.  Please drive slowly if you come to Milford Point.. thanks)
