My Brother-in-law, who is more than a novice birder, saw high in the sky from his home in Holts Summit MO what he described as a kite like bird with a forked tail. After searching through his Peterson Guide he knows it was a large kite with a forked tail.
It was to far up for him to see any real field marks such as color.
Just wanted to give everyone a heads up. He said it was headed north when it finally left his field of view.
