After meeting Kevin from Maryland last week who needed a Mississippi Kite for his life list and asked me where to look, I thought I'd share some possible locations in the Webster Groves area for others that also might want to see one.
My unofficial 4-mile walking loop survey produced 8 kite sightings this Sunday morning, an "average to good" amount for this area in comparison to the last 10 years. I've listed the intersections below for others that might want to try for this species. Look for perched kites on dead branches. The entire list of sightings is on eBird.
