Hi, group -- I saw the adult Mississippi Kite this morning at this place (Claiborne Pkwy/Early Light Pl. in Ashburn). I have seen them before, including a newly fledged young bird last year. My report from this morning is at: https://ebird.org/checklist/S71351413
But I have never been able to locate their nest. If you have information, do you mind sharing it with me?
I understand this is a somewhat sensitive topic, and if you don't want to share, I understand. But I am a very ethical birder -- I used a long telephoto lens and do not approach wildlife close (in any case, I'd think this nest is high above ground). I just want to observe the birds in their nest, especially feeding behavior. If you don't want to broadcast the information, please email me at: howiewu1 _AT_ gmail _DOT_ com (in case it is redacted).
Thanks, Howard Wu Herndon, VA
