The White-tailed Kite was perched on a snag behind the tennis courts  at 
Short Beach in Stratford this afternoon, between 3 and 3:30 PM.  It  spent a 
lot of time preening and wing-stretching when it wasn't busy  just trying to 
stay in place on the snag in the strong wind  gusts. The bird appears to 
have finished its' molt, so if molting was holding it  back from departing, 
that reason for delay is gone.
