Hi Mike,

You missed a juv. Mississippi Kite at 1:50 hawk time right overhead.  Betsy spotted it.  Henry saw it and validated my sketch.  I though it was a Peregrine at first and that is what is marked down in the sheet.  However I compared my sketch to photos at home and that with its flight behavior didn't fit Peregrine.

I think that these kites were pushed up by TS Hanna.

I also missed the RS on the sheet.

We finished at 4 p.m. as the flight appeared to have ended.  Most of the BW had moved well north after 3 pm.
