The WHITE-TAILED KITE performing spectacularly as usual, catching and eating 
several voles before climbing into the stratosphere at 5:45pm and drifting off 
towards Milford point.

A crippling WOOD THRUSH skulking in bushes around the building was rather out of 
place and a nice flock of 30 Black-crowned Night Herons migrating across Long 
Island sound.
