The White-tailed Kite quickly caught a small to moderately-sized vole around
4:38 in the prime hunting area. The kite ate it within a few minutes on the
rock wall, and surprisingly tried to hunt for more for a minute or two. It
banked around to the west side and hunkered down in a tree for a few minutes
as very heavy rain and 20-30MPH winds with higher gusts moved in. It popped
up, came back around front, and seems to have left to the north as usual
around 4:50. Really rough conditions now - it is a good time to leave for
everyone here.
