When I went to Short Beach yesterday I said that was a birder and asked the
gatekeeper if I could just go in for free to look for the kite - and he
just sighed , shook his head, and said yes. If they try to charge you,
explain that you're another crazy birder and maybe they won't charge! Since
it wasn't there I was out in five minutes -- then got the GREAT pleasure of
(finally) seeing it on Stratford Point when it hunted, caught, and ate a
big, fat vole. Gorgeous bird.
