>From Jamie Meyers: 
7/21 -- West Simsbury, Tulmeadow Farm -- 10:30 AM; MISSISSIPPI KITE soaring along the "mountain" ridge line loosely in the company of two BLACK VULTURES. 

This location, as the kite flies, is 2 - 3 miles southwest of Great Pond, where presumably the same bird was reported earlier this morning. Sightings here are not without precedent, as one was reported from Simsbury Farms Golf Course, which is very nearby, one or two summers ago. There is a good amount of quality marshland nearby. 

This combination of birds of prey is pretty cool. 20 years ago, it would have been almost unimaginable.
