I just received a phone call from birder friend, Jim Cortina ( an experienced birder and hawk-watcher). He was at his home in Trumbull, and about 6:00 pm watched a raptor flying overhead for a while. He thinks it could only have been a WHITE-TAILED KITE, and his description of field marks and behavior fit that well. He is well aware that it would be extraordinary, but based on what he saw, he doesn't know what else it could be. It was last seen drifting south towards Bridgeport or Fairfield.

Keep your eyes to the skies.
