Thanks go out to Ken McDermott for alerting me to the presence of the Mississippi Kite in Sterling Forest this morning. I was able to zoom down and have great views of this beautiful bird. Many people got to see it during the time I was there. Also present was a Mourning Warbler and a Hooded Warbler. Congratulations to Ken also on this being his 300th bird for Orange County! This was a great day of birding!

    I am so glad you saw the bird. When I was there yesterday I watched him for about 10 minutes. Then he flew way up in a thermal and took off.
