For at least the past several evenings in Orcutt there has been a roost of
more than 50 (perhaps 100!) white-tailed kites. With so many birds being so
active, it is hard to get a precise number, but I counted over 50 perched
birds, with more flying around in the general area, and more coming in from
other areas all the time. A friend estimated about 100 birds yesterday. A
very impressive sight!
The roost is along the bend in S. Broadway, where it becomes W. Rice Ranch
Rd. It's just a couple blocks off Clark, very easy to find.
