Have not seen them reported and this is a FOS for me.

FYI about the SWALLOW-TAILED KITE at Weldon Spring....
AUGUST 2006 BIRD REPORT
By: Jim Ziebol and Yvonne Homeyer
Introduction: Undoubtedly, the bird of the month and the most
outstanding bird of the year was the Swallow-tailed Kite reported by
Charlene Malone on 8/10. According to John Vogel, manager of Busch
Wildlife, the kite was originally seen on 8/6 by Mark Howell of the
USFWS; however, the sighting was not communicated to the birding
community.
SO.....it was here 4 days earlier.....!!
Good thing I listened to "my little voice" to go to Busch and then to Weldon 
Spring.
(Usually I try NOT to listen to the voices in my head....;-)

Hope this front will bring in some goodies.

Nite,
Charlene Malone
St. Louis co
