My experience in Metairie near the lake this spring is pretty consistent with the last five years or so. We have a regular group of kites who perch on the power lines on Avron between Clearview Parkway and Transcontinental. I hear and see them every night now above my home on Purdue Drive, sometimes seeing as many as five circling above. They are not particularly shy of humans or automobiles and everyone seems to give them their space.
