Greetings COBIRDERS:

Great job to all have seen and are searching for this kite! As a side
note, while cataloguing exotic bird specimens at the University of
Colorado-Boulder Museum of Natural History in the late 1980s, I came across
a swallow-tailed kite placed in the wrong drawer. The tag indicated that
the adult bird had been shot in Colorado Springs in the late 1800s, after
Colorado became a state in 1876.

Good luck relocating the bird!
