[pen-bird] [SFBirds] Mississippi Kite

Aaron Maizlish

Wow, that has to be the best yard-bird sighting anywhere of the current Shelter-in-Place era yet! Way to go Max and Marc! I’ll be looking out my window (two miles north) now.

For the Peninsula birders, as Peter mentioned this is just a hundred feet or so from the county line. Could have been in San Mateo air space at the time for all we know. San Bruno Mtn could be a lucky place to look this afternoon.

The Lara's saw it at San Jose Avenue and Goeth Street, right on the SF-San Mateo border. It was first spotted by Max's son, Marc.

Good skywatching!

Just got a photo of a MIKI by Max Lara, taken at about 11:30 while looking for the ibis. Not sure where yet but near Lake Merced, I believe. Peter
