As Scott Merrill has already indicated, the White-tailed Kite may no longer
be in Weekiwachee Preserve in Hernando County. Steve Collins and Al and I
searched extensively this morning in areas where it had been seen
yesterday, without luck.

As far as I know, the last time it was seen was when Steve Collins watched
it climbing in the thermals about noon yesterday.

This was apparently the first record of this species in Hernando County.

Please note new e-mail address.
