"...For you wandering birders, I suggest that you check Massbird or Connecticut birding hotlines for the Swallow-tailed Kite presently being seen in Deep River, Connecticut just off Route 9. Many birders have been flocking to this area for the last three days. The farthest north that this kite usually migrates is southern North Carolina. Record have been seen throughout the Northeast and mid-section of the Ohio Valley. " Tom Collins, Pittsfield, Mass.
