Subject: [CT Birds] Mississippi Kite- Monroe
I should have mentioned in my last post that I saw the Mississippi Kite fly over our backyard on June 15th. I emailed Frank Mantlik a photo and he confirmed my ID and I reported it on e-Bird including the photo.This was my second sighting. Today I was able to get another good look with binoculars and was able to get one photo before it flew off. We live on the Monroe/Shelton town line. It will be interesting to see if there are any other sightings.

Here's a link to the e-Bird report-
