Chris Lynch contacted me this morning and he went up to see the Swallow-tailed Kites in Antlers and there are 4 of them now. A storm last night blew over a tree in Kevin's yard and there were 3 guys with chain saws cutting up the tree and 50 ft. above them sat 3 of the kites looking down on the workmen seemly un-alarmed. Sounds like they are really tame. Chris posted the sighting to ebird and will have pics up soon. He is going back this afternoon to try and get all 4 birds in one photo.

There are two Swallow-tailed Kites hanging out in a yard in Antlers. They have been present on and off for three days. I have seen photos of them so the I.D. is confirmed. If anyone is interested in trying to see them call Kevin at 580-209-2031.
