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.
6 hrs. observation time
