Today, I found a Juvenile MISSISSIPPI KITE at the Hawkeye Wildlife area of Coralville Lake. Specifically, it was at the intersection of Greencastle and Swan Lake Rd.
It was sitting on a dead snag at the very top of the tallest tree in the Northeast quadrant of the intersection. It looked around for 5 to 10 minutes and then flew off to the Northeast. This is the same area that one showed up a few years back when the Swallow-Tailed Kite was in the area. Hope it will stick around awhile!
