speaking of kites; about 5 Sundays ago (5/15 140pm) I was at Riverlands and
walked all the way to the back (ellis island). I saw a kite like bird (size,
shape) that underneath had white wings and tail with a dark body and head
(black or blue). I thought its tail was noticeably notched. i couldn’t find
anything in Peterson or Sibley like it. it was hovering/gliding like a gull
maybe 20 feet overhead along the shore then took off toward the woods.
anyone have any ideas? I was so stunned I failed to note things as
systematically as I would have liked to.
